When you start thinking of vacation, what comes to mind? Some people long for a boat ride in the Caribbean. Others love to cozy up in a cabin surrounded by snow. But if you’re like us, you crave that salt air and soft sand between your toes. There’s just something about the endless waves that are so calming. While we know Bald Head Island has many endearing qualities and holds a special spot in hearts around the world, we were happy to see TripAdvisor name our beloved island in 13 Best Beaches in North Carolina for the Perfect Vacation.
Among a pleasant list of beach houses, condos, and classic cottages, Bald Head Island was included with some of the highest-rated rental properties in the state according to TripAdvisor. While North Carolina has a little of everything to appeal to all types such as the romantic and historic area of Asheville or the Appalachian Trail, it is also home to a variety of welcoming beaches. Corolla boasts wild horses at the Spanish Mustang Reserve, you can visit the popular Jockey’s Ridge in Nags Head, or take a helicopter tour of Oak Island. But if you truly want to get away from it all, Bald Head Island is where you need to be.
Since no cars are allowed on Bald Head Island, you’re forced to adopt a slower pace and enjoy the little things. Take a golf cart to Maritime Market or ride a bike around the island and sightsee. You can climb to the top of the oldest lighthouse in North Carolina, Old Baldy, and get a panoramic view of the island. Rent a kayak and enjoy a relaxing ride through the creeks. Spend the day on the beach and then unwind at your luxury Bald Head Island vacation rental. Choose from a large selection of homes with direct beach access, expansive porches, and multiple bedrooms for bigger groups.
Next time you are planning a beach vacation, put North Carolina on the list. We agree with TripAdvisor travelers, Bald Head Island is the perfect place to vacation!
