Spend Memorial Day at the Beach

Looking forward to Memorial Day? Last year, many of us were holding down our home fort but this summer will be different. Restrictions have been lifted, vaccines are available, and travel is picking back up. It’s time for a vacation and we think Bald Head Island is the perfect place to spend your time off. If you need help convincing your crew, here are our top reasons the island is ideal for Memorial Day.  

The Beaches 

There are lots of beaches to choose from around the country. What makes Bald Head Island so special? First of all, you have to take a ferry to access the island. It truly gives you the feeling of “getting away from it all”. The beaches are beautiful and don’t have all the crowds that most have. Many still prefer to socially distance and this is the perfect place to have your own space and feel safe relaxing on the sand. You can rent surfboards and paddleboards locally and enjoy checking out the marine life out in the water.  

The Atmosphere 

The laid-back way of life in Bald Head Island is one you don’t find often. Without cars on the island, things seem more easygoing as people embrace walking and biking. Quiet golf carts can get you around and you’ll enjoy the breeze in your hair whichever method you choose. Whether you’re lounging on the beach, enjoying a hike through nature trails, or having an afternoon at the spa, you’ll have no choice but to wind down and relax. 

The Memories  

Last year was wild and it’s time to make some new memories. Invite your friends or family you haven’t seen in a while. Plan a kayak ride through the creeks or climb Old Baldy. Order groceries from Maritime Market and have a beach picnic. Bald Head Island vacation rentals offered by Intracoastal Realty, the island's preferred accommodations provider, include a variety of options from smaller and cozy to multiple bedrooms for the whole extended crew. Select a home with expansive wraparound decks or a screened porch with a view of the beach. If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the recent months, it’s to never take the little things for granted.  

Summer will be here soon and you don’t want to wait too long to lock in accommodations. People are craving a vacation and the beach is one of the top summer destinations. Browse our available rentals and book your Memorial Day getaway for you and the kids, your best friends, and even your dog with our pet-friendly rentals. We hope to see you soon!
