your BHI vacation

Your Vacation Home - The first step of planning your vacation is finding the perfect vacation rental. Deciding on your getaway home is not always the easiest choice but here at Bald Head Island Limited, we are on hand to help you select the best accommodations for your family. From a spacious porch with stunning beach views to plenty of bedrooms with a cozy fireplace or private beach access, there are a variety of options to choose from that we can assist with.

Getting Here - Bald Head Island is truly the place to go to get away from it all. A 20 minute ferry ride is taken to reach the island from the marina in Southport. Tickets have to be purchased in advance as ferry rides are on a set schedule. You can purchase tickets and see the ferry schedule here.

Pack Accordingly - BHI has a little of everything from marshes and preserves, miles of beaches, hiking and biking trails. Make sure you pack for every activity: swimsuit for the beach or the pool, a sweater for cool nights, golf and croquet attire, tennis shoes for outdoor sports. If you’re planning on soaking up some sun, don’t forget the sunscreen. You don’t want to come up short!

The Memories - Remember your camera. BHI has one-of-a-kind beauty that you don’t want to forget. As you make lasting memories with your friends and family, you’ll want to have mementos to take home with you in terms of photos and videos. The unmatched scenery of the island makes a perfect backdrop for your vacation photo album.

Shopping Tips - Each rental comes equipped with startup items but extras will need to be purchased and can be found at the Maritime Market. Wine and beer are also sold at the market but liquor is not sold on the island. Plan ahead to bring all the supplies you’ll need. Beach equipment and bicycles are available for rental on the island.

We know whenever you decide to come, you’ll have the vacation of a lifetime. Bald Head Island is where you want to be to relax, kick back, and take time off from the real world. We look forward to seeing you here!
