Bald Head Island

Bald Head Island, North Carolina's semi-tropical climate provides the opportunity for year-round, outdoor activities.

The island’s 15 miles of pathways and 14 miles of sandy beaches are a beachcombers’ paradise. As the ferry makes its way over to the island, wave goodbye to your car and your stress and reset your watch to island time. Once you're settled on the island, kayak through the marshes, or head out on a sailing cruise or fishing expedition.
