The Home of Salubrious* Breezes

Southport is located on the coast in Southeastern North Carolina, where the Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic Ocean. We’re known for our stunning scenery, our history, the maritime heritage of our forebears, and the salubrious breezes that cast a calm and welcoming ambience over the residents and visitors of our little slice of heaven.

*salubrious (suh-lube-ree-us) adj: favorable to or promoting health or well-being.
