The Labor Day holiday weekend marks the final days of summer and it is right around the corner. Summer 2020 has been a wild ride and if you’re like me you want to get off that ride and enjoy the final days of the season at a stress-free location. Bald Head Island is the perfect place to spend your last days of summer.
As soon as you board the ferry a sense of peace consumes you. There is no traffic or road rage where you’re going. In fact, golf carts and bicycles are the only thing allowed on the island with wheels. Step off the boat to the site of Old Baldy, the state’s oldest standing lighthouse and a subtropical island you cannot wait to explore.
Amid the island’s 12,000 acres, you’ll discover 10,000 untouched acres of beach, marsh, and maritime forest preserves. Bald Head Island vacation rentals are very private and respecting of the natural beauty that surrounds them. Cozy rentals with wrap-around porches boasting breathtaking views of the ocean. You immediately spot a hammock where you just may plan to spend most of your time.
Bald Head Island has 14 miles of beautiful beaches that are perfect to stroll, take a swim, or just unwind. A beach chair and umbrella await, all set up for a perfect view. Bald Head Island also has Maritime Forest Preserve trails so you can become one with nature. Clear your mind on a nature hike through the woods discovering wildlife.
Hop on your bike for an easy ride to your favorite Bald Head Island restaurant for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack. Morning coffee and muffins at Sandpiper Ice Cream and Coffee Shop, a late lunch of delicious seafood at Jules’ Salty Grub & Island Pub, finish the evening off with a glass or two of wine and a snack complete with a relaxing view of the river at Will O’ the Wisp. Bike ride back to catch the sunset from that lovely hammock on the porch of your Bald Head Island Vacation Rental.
Summer 2020 is about to come to an end. Despite the chaos we will look back and remember this summer for the laid-back, relaxing vacation we took to celebrate the season. Happy Labor Day Weekend from Bald Head Island!
