Everyone has something they love about being in Bald Head Island. From the hiking trails and beaches to fishing and historical sites, there’s something for us all to enjoy. Here are 5 things we think Bald Head Island is perfect for:

Family Reunions – Along with beautiful scenery, Bald Head Island provides luxury rentals that can accommodate any family, small or large. Oceanside homes with wraparound decks and charming homes nestled in the maritime forest can be the ideal location for reuniting with your relatives. Many of our premier properties feature fireplaces, crofters, entertainment rooms, and plenty of spacious bedrooms to accommodate many.

Weddings – One of the most difficult parts about planning a wedding is finding the location. The natural beauty of Bald Head Island can be the perfect place for the wedding you’ve long dreamed of. Imagine your special day with all your close friends and family on the stunning beaches of BHI. The island’s premier reception venue, Shoal’s Club, offers breathtaking views of the ocean and can be the ideal backdrop for precious memories. 

Relaxing – Sometimes you just need to get away from it all and this is the place to do it. Without cars around, you can enjoy the sounds of nature. Fall asleep listening to the waves crashing and wake up to the birds chirping. Grab a good book and spread out at the beach or in a hammock at your Bald Head Island vacation home. Take a walk on the sand and collect shells or enjoy a peaceful kayak ride through the creeks. 

Adventure – For some, getting away to do absolutely nothing is their preferred vacation. For others, they like to pack in as many activities as possible before heading back home. 14 miles of pristine beaches along with 15 miles of roadway to ride on provide plenty of opportunities for adventure. Here are just some of the fun things you can add to your Bald Head Island itinerary: bike riding, hiking, kayaking and canoeing, sailing, paddleboarding, and kiteboarding. Throughout the summer, the BHI Conservancy also conducts several children’s camps providing lots of fun activities for kids.

Turtle Walks – Have you ever seen a nesting sea turtle or watched their babies hatch? The BHI Conservancy hosts a Turtle Walk program where they monitor sea turtle nests. Each summer, scores of loggerheads return to the island to lay their eggs. Seeing the sand rumbling while little hatchlings dig out and head to the water can be a once in a lifetime experience!

These are some of the reasons we love Bald Head Island. However you spend your time on the island, we can guarantee you’ll make lasting memories and be eager to return for more.
