ENDLESS SUMMER Just two miles off the southern coast of North Carolina, Bald Head Island offers a true change of pace. You’ll leave your car on the mainland and travel to our shores by a 20-minute ferry ride, making for a natural transition to “island time.” Once you arrive, an easygoing, summer-state-of-mind rules the day—no matter what season it happens to be.


S E A S T H E DAY As your place slows to that of an electric golf cart, bicycle or your own two feet, you’ll have a chance to take in the surroundings—quiet beaches, lush forest, winding creeks and idyllic streetscapes. All the while, you’ll discover how exhilarating life in the slow lane can be.


A SHORE THING Fourteen uninterrupted, uncrowded miles of beaches offer the perfect place to stroll, shell, swim, wade or just watch the waves roll in to your heart’s content.


WILD ABANDON From Harbour Village to Cape Fear and all points in between, the island offers a natural playground for exploring. Pedal along the island’s car-free wynds. Kayak through our winding creeks. Take a Turtle Walk with the Conservancy. Climb a 200-year-old lighthouse. Hike a maritime forest trail. Cast a line in hopes of landing dinner. Simply relax and let your whims take you from one adventure to the next.


J O I N T H E C LU B S When you book most rental homes through Bald Head Island Limited Property Management, you’ll enjoy temporary membership in the Shoals Club and the Bald Head Island Club during your stay. The family-friendly Shoals Club overlooks the magnificent point of Cape Fear. Complementing the club’s dramatic views are fine and casual dining, swimming


pools, locker rooms, and a host of recreational programs for all ages and interests. The Bald Head Island Club golf course, named one of the top 100 courses in the U.S., has earned glowing accolades from Links magazine for quality of play. The club also offers tennis, swimming, a splash pad, kids’ camps, croquet and excellent fine and casual dining.
