My family will be coming for our first trip to Myrtle beach in July. I have had many people who upon learning of our plans warn us about consistently “strong rip currents and undertow” in the Myrtle beach area, (we are staying at the breakers resort area) I am beginning to worry about the safety of swimming in the ocean. We have a 7year old son who loves the water and his safety is our highest concern. Can anyone tell me about the typical conditions for the area and is this considered a generally safe swimming area. Ty in advance.
