Summer is right around the corner and it’s time to start planning so you can make the most of your vacation. Bald Head Island has everything you could want for an ideal summer break:

1 – Beaches – When people talk about summer, one word usually comes to mind: BEACH! Whether it’s east coast or west coast, our country’s beaches attract thousands each year for that coveted beach vacation. What’s so great about Bald Head Island? You’ll find 14 miles of pristine beaches and actually have more than enough space for your family, friends, and all your gear. Since Bald Head Island requires a 20-minute ferry ride to access, you won’t see the beaches here crowded and uncomfortable.

2 – Adventure – Some people may think of vacation as their time to finally do “nothing” but others crave adventure. There’s plenty to do on the island to guarantee you’ll never be bored! You can rent a surfboard, boogie board, or paddleboard and spend the day riding waves. Or take a kayak or canoe through the creeks. Try sailing with The Sail Shop while an instructor takes you through the Cape Fear River. Coastal Urge provides kiteboarding lessons for those interested in this daring sport. 

3 – Luxury – What’s a dream vacation without the perfect rental to come back to? Bald Head Island vacation rentals provide luxury at its finest. Imagine waking up and having breakfast on your wraparound deck while you watch the waves crashing only steps away. Choose from a number of beautifully decorated, spacious homes while you enjoy company by all your friends and family in an oceanfront property. Bald Head Island Limited Vacations allow you to explore complimentary activities through a Discovery Pass Program. 

4 – Peace & Quiet – Bald Head Island offers a unique environment as there are no cars driving around. Golf carts, bicycles, or your own two feet are required to get around the island. The year-round population is around 200 people so you can skip the beach crowds this summer! Take a stroll through nature or curl up in a hammock with a good book and enjoy the peace and quiet.

5 – Perfect Temperatures – The average temperature during summer months is in the eighties. Warm, sunny days are just what the doctor ordered to cure what ails you. For summer vacation, you don’t want it to be too hot OR too cold so we think 80 degrees is just right. You can take a walk or bike ride without melting and hop in the water at the beach afterwards!

There you have it! It’s time to book the perfect summer vacation and that is at Bald Head Island. We look forward to seeing you!
