One of the best things about Bald Head Island is there is something for everyone to enjoy on their vacation. While many are attracted by the beauty, the seclusion, or the lack of automobiles, there is fun to be had by all in your group no matter their age or circumstances. If you are planning a Bald Head Island vacation, here are some things you can look forward to. 

Traveling with Kids: Along with miles of pristine beaches to play on and the maritime forests to explore, there are plenty of fun activities for kids throughout the year. During the summer, Bald Head Island Conservancy offers children’s camps that feature arts & crafts, science fun, crabbing, shell collecting and learning about the island’s unique ecosystem. The Shoal’s Club has family movies, volleyball, and bocce ball. They can also join Sea Turtle Patrol as they search for nesting sea turtles. These are some of the things offered but you can find much more here

Traveling Solo: Sometimes you just need some alone time and take a trip to get away from it ALL. We’ve been there! What can you enjoy on Bald Head Island if you are traveling solo? Of course, you can grab a good book and sit by the ocean for a relaxing time. You can check out Island Retreat Spa & Salon for some pampering. A pedicure, facial, or massage can really help you feel refreshed. Enjoy some retail therapy at Silver Peddler and Island Passage with no one to tell you to hurry your shopping. 

Traveling with Older Ones: Bald Head Island has no age limit and even those up in age have plenty to appreciate. While they may not be interested in climbing to the top of Old Baldy, they will likely enjoy the Smith Island Museum that takes you into Island history. Maritime Market Café is a great breakfast spot for early risers and everyone loves the seafood omelet or specialty crepes. Rent chairs and an umbrella from Riverside Adventure Company so they can enjoy the sounds of the waves and watching the grandkids while relaxing in the shade. 

Traveling for Couples: Hit the courts with your partner and enjoy a fun tennis match at the Bald Head Island Club. To wind down after a game, you can get massages at Island Retreat and then dinner and drinks at Mojo’s on the Harbor. Take a couples’ bike ride (tandem bikes are available!) or explore the Maritime Forests. Rent a canoe or book a sailing lesson and enjoy an afternoon out on the water. Stop by All About Art and unleash your creativity together with some original pieces you can create and take home. 

Besides these, there’s also fishing, golf, swimming pools, and much more! No doubt about it, everyone can find something to love on Bald Head Island. There’s no need to worry about what to expect. Even if you keep your schedule wide open, taking in the stunning scenery will keep you busy and make it a trip you’ll never forget.
