It’s time to book your vacation. Whether it’s been years or only months since your last trip, you want to make it worth it. Time away is known to help reenergize you and boost productivity when you get back. Getting caught up in the daily grind can wear you out so a vacation should be a priority. Anywhere but home can be a nice break but we’re giving our top 5 reasons you should plan a trip by the ocean.  

Easy Beach Access  

Of course, the biggest perk to being by the ocean is the easy beach access. If you’re lucky enough to get a beach getaway, you want to take advantage of the beach as much as possible. Book a luxury home right on the beach and you’ll have the perks of walking to and from the beach easily throughout the day. When the kids are tired, when you need more snacks, or when you forgot sunblock, just run back to the house because it’s right there.  

Sunrise Breakfast 

Starting the day off on a peaceful note is the best way to start the day. Bring your coffee out on the deck, a bagel or smoothie, and sit quietly taking in all the colors of the sunrise. Practicing gratitude is a great way to stay positive and center yourself before a busy day. 

Close to Fishing 

Being close to the water means close to fishing. Fishing is a favorite pastime in Bald Head Island and you’ll want to get out there when the fish are biting. Charter boats are available or you can fish off the shore or from a kayak in the creeks. Spend the day just enjoying the activity or catch dinner for the crew to enjoy later! 

Sunset Walks 

After all the great seafood meals, you’ll probably want to get in some exercise. A walk outside is nice but have you ever done it as the sun was going down? Bald Head Island has amazing sunsets and you’ll be in awe over the colors swirling around the sky. Bring the whole family and get some photos with the brilliant backdrop.  

Water Sports 

Besides the warm sun on your skin and the soft sand between your toes, there’s plenty more to enjoy at the beach. Take advantage of the rentals available and have some fun out in the water. Paddleboards and surfboards can be rented and it’s a great way to see marine life. Paddleboarding is a great workout and is a nice, relaxing activity all ages can enjoy.  

Now you just have to book your home! We have a wide selection of Bald Head Island vacation rentals right on the beach, near the beach, or tucked away in the maritime forest. Check the calendar and find the perfect home for you and your family. It’s time to take that beach vacation you’ve been dreaming about!
