Getting Around In Belhaven
There’s no need for a car in downtown Belhaven. Almost everything you will need to make your stay complete is within walking distance.
We're glad you're here.
Formerly known as Jack’s Neck, then Bellport, the town of Belhaven earned its official name in 1899 on the cusp of a new century.
The “Beautiful Harbor” was and still is one of the prettiest riverfront locations on North Carolina’s inner banks. Its fine old homes, many built in the early 1900’s, dot the banks of the Pantego Creek, where residents have enjoyed watching the sun rise and set in spectacular glory for generations.
In 1928, Belhaven was thrust into the national spotlight when it became the final link to complete the inland route of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, connecting Beaufort to Boston.
The waterways have defined Belhaven’s past, as well as future, providing convenient access to the Pamlico Sound and the pristine Outer Banks.
What was once a thriving center for the seafood and logging industries, Belhaven entered the new millennial as a peaceful haven for recreational boating and fishing. Its abundance and diversity of wildlife make it a popular destination for birders and hunters, and its fertile soil gives life to beautiful residential gardens, as well as seed, flower and other commercial farming operations.
Belhaven’s downtown is within easy reach of the waterfront, with quality shops and services and a variety of restaurants and other services just a walk away from local marinas and the town docks.
