3. Golf or Kayaking for Two

For adventure-inclined couples, the Island offers an endless variety of activities to take advantage of the fresh air and endorphins. Take a walk along the miles of sandy white beach, climb the historic Old Baldy lighthouse, or enjoy one of the running/bike routes we planned out around the Island. 

For other coordinated activities, the Bald Head Island Conservancy offers guided kayak and canoe tours for individuals and small groups all year round. A great adventure for the whole family, the kayaking tours are perfect for any age or skill level, and the Conservancy’s expert naturalists can help identify all of the flora and fauna you’ll see along the way.
