Guys' Getaway Ideas on Bald Head Island

Bald Head Island, NC is the perfect destination for a guys' getaway and there's no better time than spring. Rental rates are typically lower this time of year, and the weather is perfect for enjoying seaside golf, excellent fishing, and other outdoor adventures. The list is endless, but here are just a few ideas for an active guys' getaway on Bald Head Island ...

Golfing: Bald Head Island is home to one of the most picturesque golf courses in the Carolinas. Make sure your vacation rental includes a temporary membership in the Bald Head Island Club, and you'll enjoy access to the club's stunning golf course, along with access to the club's other amenities, like swimming, tennis and croquet, along with fine and casual dining.

Kayaking: Bald Head Creek provides the picture-perfect setting for kayaking. Rent a double or single kayak from Riverside Adventure Co. or Coastal Urge and paddle through the winding waters while taking in the island's natural beauty. You might even spot a dolphin or diamondback terrapin during your trip.

Fishing: Bald Head Island offers some of the best fishing opportunities on the East Coast. You can cast your line from the beach (just make sure you have a current NC Saltwater Fishing License) or head out on a fishing charter to catch a variety of fish, including red drum, trout and flounder in the creeks or tuna, wahoo, mackerel and mahi-mahi in the Atlantic Ocean. The attentive staff at the Bald Head Island Marina can recommend experienced local guides for both inshore and offshore fishing.

Beach Activities: The island's 14 miles of beaches offer plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities. You can play beach volleyball, toss a frisbee, or simply relax in the sun. If your group is adventurous, we suggest you rent a stand-up paddleboard or surfboard and catch some waves along East Beach.

Biking: With no cars crowding the roads, Bald Head Island is the ultimate bike-friendly community, and exploring the island on two wheels is arguably the best way to get around. Rent a bike from Riverside Adventure Co. or Coastal Urge and pedal around the island's many trails and roads while taking in the views of the Atlantic Ocean or lush maritime forest.

Nightlife: While the island is known more for its family-friendly vibe than its nightlife, there's still plenty of fun to be had after the sun goes down. Jules' Salty Grub & Island Pub frequently offers live music on the deck or karaoke, while Jailhouse Provisions regularly brings in island favorite DJ Fray to spin tunes on the weekends. Both restaurants have bartenders who can mix a mean drink, too. 

As you can see, Bald Head Island has plenty of activities to offer for an out-of-the-ordinary guys' getaway, whether you want to golf, fish, kayak, bike, or simply chill with your buddies. So, pack your bags, grab your friends, and head to Bald Head Island for an unforgettable vacation.
