Route description

South Carolina Highway 65 begins at US 17 in Atlantic Beach, heading six blocks south towards the shoreline, then turning east, paralleling the ocean and shoreline businesses for the next 3.5 miles, including an intersection with Main Street. At the intersection with SC 9, SC 65 heads north, leaving the shore line and heading towards its northern terminus at SC 9 in Cherry Grove Beach.


Ocean Drive is often referred to by South Carolinians as the "OD", and still brings throngs of tourists every year, notably at the beginning and end of the season (April and September) for weeklong "Shagging" events.

Major intersections

The entire route is in Horry County.
