Calabash is a small town located in Brunswick County on the banks of the Little River near the Intercoastal Waterway. It's the southernmost point in the Brunswick Islands and is known as "The Seafood Capital of the World." Calabash is also just a short drive to the other North Carolina coastal towns of Little River, Sunset Beach, Seaside and North Myrtle Beach, in what is referred to as the Grand Strand region of the state. Once a fishing village, the little town of Calabash today is known for its' many seafood restaurants and fine golf courses. More than a dozen restaurants sit along the docks of this quaint town, and feature fresh seafood right off the boat. In fact, the town's method of cooking has become known as "Calabash-style." Also, in the area you will find over 100 championship golf courses, many of them designed by masters such as Robert Trent Jones, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Rees Jones. Other attractions in the Calabash area include fishing charters and other outdoor recreation, nightclubs and entertainment, and, of course, miles of beautiful beach. Also, the Grand Strand's year round mild climate makes it an attractive place to visit any time of the year. Special points of interest near Calabash include Brookgreen Gardens, Bellefield Nature Center, the Ingram Planetarium, the Museum of Coastal Carolina, as well as wineries and lighthouses and family theme parks.

Calabash Weather & Climate

Coastal North Carolina has a temperate climate with no extreme temperature variations. Summer air temperatures along the immediate coastline are usually considerably lower than those even a few miles inland. Opposite the ocean, across the narrow barrier islands behind most beaches, are the "Sounds". These protected inland waters are calm, quiet and sheltered from the sea breezes. In winter, the Gulf Stream helps moderate air temperature and coastal fronts are common, bringing warmer than expected temperatures to the coastal areas. Sometimes, strong low-pressure systems clash with the Gulf Stream and develop into major storms, causing rain along the coast and over states to the north as well. Tropical hurricanes come close enough to North Carolina to influence the weather about twice in an average year.
