  • The Gay Dolphin is a short walk from our hotel - on the boardwalk. It is very large. We did not have time to explore as much as we wanted. The prices seemed quite reasonable. I bought a pair of shark'...  read more »
  • One of the biggest gift shops I have ever been to. There are 3 floors with a huge variety to choose from. They have all the beach themed items you could ever need. Products vary from small nick knacks to high end sculptures. This store has a little bit of everything. Various products include: African sculptures, Egyptian gold plates and a even sarcophagus, pirate maps, precious gemstones, water fountains, and much more. If your in the area, it is definitely worth the time to stop by and take a look around!
  • This place was amazing. It was deceptively big, with multiple levels, it would be easy to get lost in here. Every corner of this store was jam packed with something, it was a neat journey going through this store. I found a few cool knick knacks that will make good gifts.
  • Largest collection of useless stuff, but a staple of Myrtle Beach. If you have ever wondered if there was a specific type of souvenir, this is probably the place to look for it. The aisles are very tight and easily to bump into things. The place smells of old musty stuff and with the strange split level design it is easy to get lost in there. The place is also not very handicap friendly with the tight aisles and lack of ramps to other floors. However, as one of the original places on The Strand, it is a must visit type of place, even if it is to ponder how a place can have so many different things.
  • Huge Gift Shop! A bit pricey. busy staff, hard to get questions answered without feeling like your annoying them. again, Huge! dont get lost.
  • Very cool place! :) They have the most random collection of weird and interesting items. The layout makes it fun to explore, and multiple layers of floors make it almost like a museum. :) Definitely worth multiple visits even in a single vacation.
