A Healthy Life Is a Grande Life

July 26th, 2023

Fitness means freedom. The healthier you are, the more activities you can participate in, the safer from disease you are and the more positive you feel throughout the day. This is why the Grande Dunes community was designed to promote activity and wellness for residents of all ages.

Our home, Myrtle Beach, SC, has a national reputation for being a beautiful place to stay outside and in shape, and our community stays true to that. Though Grande Dunes is known for its amenities that can turn every day into an active adventure, our commitment to fitness goes much deeper than that. The community was master planned from the beginning to nurture togetherness – togetherness that leads to activity.

Friends and family can take a scenic stroll down the Intracoastal Waterway Trail to the Grande Dunes Marina. If you want something a bit more high energy, go kayaking in the Intracoastal, or rent a personal watercraft at the Grande Dunes Marina. Our community is meticulously designed to contain all the necessary conditions for healthy living. An abundance of healthful socializing including gardening, hiking, swimming and kayaking are waiting for you.

Build Your Ideal Routine

Copy: Structure can be helpful when committing to a fitness routine, and Grande Dunes residents have plenty of regularly scheduled wellness-promoting programs available to them. The Ocean Club offers yoga, aerobics and dance classes for those who prefer a group workout. The Claire Chapin Epps Family YMCA, located onsite at Grande Dunes, offers high-energy programming of its own, including Zumba and group bike classes.

Or, for the more competitive residents, sign up for one of our regular events at our tennis club and golf clubs. Without leaving the community, you can go head-to-head with your neighbors at the Y’s racquetball courts or join their adult soccer league. Get your kids in the mix with youth sports, including flag football, basketball and summer league swimming.

Health Care on Hand

Copy: Wellness means more than staying fit, it also means access to first-class medical facilities. The Grand Strand Medical Center is part of the Grande Dunes community — located just across the street from Portside at Grande Dunes, our senior living neighborhood. The medical center offers primary and emergency care services, and hosts specialized clinics that focus on dental care, nutrition services, dermatology, physical therapy and more.

When you join the Grande Dunes community, you’re not only on your way to making each day better, you’re on your way to a healthier and happier life. Live Grande as your best self. Come tour our community to see the active Grande Dunes lifestyle for yourself.
