Belhaven is located on the north shore of Pungo River. One can
go, by water, eight miles southeast to Pamlico Sound. From there
the outer banks of North Carolina lay fifteen miles east. In
a normal year Pungo River and its tributaries, and Pamlico Sound
and its tributaries are a sports fisherman's paradise. Then
the Atlantic Ocean out of Ocracoke and Oregon Inlets provide
a marvelous deep-sea fishing experience.
There is also an abundance of wildlife in the area including
white tail deer, black bear, rabbits, squirrels, quail, swan
and most all varieties of ducks and geese.
The purpose of this site is to inform our citizens of the
various services we provide and how to obtain them, and provide
others who might be interested in coastal Carolina, a path to
the good life.
