Have you been dreaming of a beach getaway? If you haven't been here before, you might be thinking of popular spots like the Caribbean, or perhaps an all-inclusive resort. Maybe your family tradition is Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, or the Florida Panhandle. Bald Head Island may not be the first thing you think of if you haven’t visited before but there are plenty of reasons why you should visit. One trip to Bald Head Island will make it your new family tradition as it is truly a place like no other. But don’t just take our word for it. Southern Living has their own “5 Reasons to Visit Bald Head Island”. 

Bald Head Island has a little of everything: beaches, marshes and forests, hiking, biking, historical sites, and awesome beach rentals with stunning views. It already stole our hearts but Southern Living gave five reasons to “board the ferry, ditch your car, and head outside”:

1: There are No Honking Cars or Traffic Jams - the problem with popular beach destinations is that they're usually crowded. Ditch those crowds and enjoy the beach space, the quiet neighborhoods, and the slower pace of the island. 

2: Forest or Sea? Choose Your Own Adventure - The scenery is unmatched here on Bald Head Island. Plan to spend the warm afternoons at the beach and then check out the rest of the island. Enjoy enchanting Maritime Forests with beautiful hanging trees or kayak through the creeks for a unique view. 

3: Reconnect (or Connect) With Nature - You can take advantage of exploring the wonders of the island on your own or plan a guided tour. Have a professional take you through the creeks or rent your own kayak and go at your own pace. Connecting with nature is one of the best ways to unwind and relieve stress.

4: It’s Full of History - Surely you've heard of Old Baldy, North Carolina's oldest standing lighthouse. You can climb to the top and get the best view of the island and when you're done, learn about the rich history of the area at the Smith Museum. 

5: They Have Exactly What You Need – and Nothing Else - Have you ever been on a vacation and there was so much to do, you couldn't pack it all in? The great thing about a Bald Head Island vacation is the emphasis is on truly relaxing. The hustle and bustle of life can be exhausting. Here, you can spread out on the sand and listen to the waves, lounge on your spacious deck with a beach view, or just enjoy the time with those you love making new memories at your vacation home. 

With only bicycles or golf carts to get around town, the quiet island is the perfect place to really slow down and enjoy life for a change. Rentals are available for bike rides or water sports or a relaxing day at the beach. 

Are you intrigued? Now you just need somewhere to stay. Browse our wide selection of luxury homes that can accommodate multiple families and provide gorgeous views of the island. We look forward to seeing you here!
