Welcome to Calabash, NC

Experience the rich history and amazing tastes of Coastal North Carolina!

The Seafood Capital of the World

Nestled between Wilmington, North Carolina, a historic port city, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, known as the Sun Fun Capital, Calabash provides a serene, small-town atmosphere while offering convenient access to educational facilities, shopping, healthcare, and the perks of larger urban areas.

The Town of Calabash, accurately dubbed “The Seafood Capital of the World,” is a quaint coastal town with a strong claim to its title. With over 30 seafood eateries in a town of just over 2,000 residents, its culinary reputation is further bolstered by the nationwide presence of Calabash-style dining, celebrated for its unique method of light battering and deep-frying seafood.
