First thing you’ll notice as you arrive in Calabash is its vast variety of seafood restaurants. In fact, the town proudly holds the title of “Seafood Capital of the World” due to the town’s national famed signature seafood preparation—Calabash style. Shrimp, clams, fish and oysters are coated in a light batter and quickly fried to lock in their freshness. Which of the family restaurants in Calabash holds the original recipe? No one truly knows—but all taste equally authentic and delicious. If you prefer, reel in your own catch on a deep-sea fishing adventure, or simply watch the fishing boats come to dock. An abundance of unique shops—including a Christmas Shop—golf courses, close proximity to Myrtle Beach and a charming small-town feel complete the picture for a vacation that’s full of savory experiences.
