  • Ive been going to Myrtle Beach since I was 6 years old maybe younger & I'm 27 today. I have always loved going to this gift shop. I still visit to this day! I was there just 3 days ago & it's better than the last time which was a few years ago! Some things were the same but mostly new stuff unless my interests have changed over the course of time. I Ā°ā€¢L O V Eā€¢Ā° this store! It's floors upon floors of just cool stuff! Definitely won't walk in and right back out. You will get lost into the awesomeness that is Gay Dolphin Gift Cove!!! If I have any children, I will definitely bring them here! šŸ’–šŸ’–šŸ˜€šŸ˜€
  • Love shopping here. Love all the levels to shop on. So much to look at. Go here every time I go to Myrtle Beach. I'm not sure if I have actually seen it all. Love the merchandise
  • THE BEST SHOPPING IN MYRTLE BEACH. THEY HAVE EVERYTHING!!!! No really, they have everything. And it's literally a MAZE to find your way around, so awesome!!! It's like 3 or 4 levels of exploring. There is even a giant gorilla in the bottom of the store wearing a shirt that says "I got lost in the Gay Dolphin" NOT STROLLER accessible. 5/5
  • The Gay Dolphin was a really interesting store. I think they probaly carry every single thing you could think of. For me, it was a little too much. I would have had to spend hours here just to look at everything. I'd rather just go in and look around quick and get out. That way i can see a lot more things in the area.
  • Visiting this place reminded me of coming here with my parents as a child. Hasn't changed in 40 years and I'm glad. My kids love shopping here as much as I did. They have cheap knick knacks to expensive gift and jewelry items. To me I view this place as an icon of Myrtle Beach. As everything has changed at this beach over the years, this place is a wonderful reminder of all the wonderful times I've had here since childhood.
