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-ofmind rules the day—no matter what season it happens to be.


S E A S T H E DAY As your pace 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 a new aquatics complex, tennis, kids’ camps, croquet and excellent fine and casual dining.

BALD HEAD ISL AND CHAPEL The quaint Bald Head Island Chapel is a picture-perfect spot for a more traditional wedding ceremony. Situated near the lighthouse, the windows behind the altar overlook Bald Head Creek.

ATL ANTIC OCEAN BEACHES Bald Head Island’s pristine beaches offer a picturesque and inspiring location for nuptials beneath a broad expanse of sky. Seating is easily arranged for ceremonies of any size.

Tie the knot in the shadow of North Carolina’s oldest standing lighthouse. The grounds of Old Baldy are available as a ceremony or tented reception site, suitable for small to medium-sized weddings.

THE COMMON AT CAPE FEAR STATION The Common, a traditional village green located at the heart of the Cape Fear Station neighborhood, is a beautiful location for outdoor wedding ceremonies and just a stone’s throw from the Shoals Club.

BALD HEAD A SSOCIATION CENTER Nestled in the maritime forest with views of Bald Head Creek, the Bald Head Association Building offers a large, open room and additional outdoor seating for receptions and other gatherings.

PRIVATE HOMES For smaller receptions or rehearsal dinners, private homes can offer an intimate, less formal setting. Homes are available in all environments, including oceanfront. Inquire with Bald Head Island Limited Property Management for a list of homes that allow private events.
