Bald Head Island is a second home and vacation community located just off the coast of Southport, NC that does not allow cars. With no bridge connecting the island to the mainland, visitors take a 20-minute ferry ride across the Cape Fear. Once on island, the favored method of transport is electric cart, bicycle, or walking. Of the island’s 12,000 acres, 10,000 have been permanently preserved and will never be developed. To learn more about Bald Head Island, visit www.baldheadisland.com.
