The Ingram Dunes in North Myrtle Beach are the highest relic dunes on the coast of South Carolina. They rise to 50 ft. above sea level and are covered with old growth maritime forest including live oaks and cedars. They are estimated by state geologists to be between 12,000 and 80,000 years old, and have been used and cherished as an open space by members of the community and the public for over 70 years. Indeed, Ingram Dunes are one of the last remaining undisturbed natural areas in the city.
