Welcome to Bald Head Island

Bald Head Island

Beautiful Bald Head Island lies off the tip of the Cape Fear peninsula, a serene retreat to a simpler way of life. Scattered along the tiny island's beaches and tidal creeks, and nestled amid its maritime forest, are stunning homes carefully constructed in the coastal architectural style to complement their natural surroundings. Many are available as holiday rentals, and year after year, families board the ferry at Southport, the only way to reach the island, for a week or two of relaxation. Bald Head is also a lovely day trip, however. There are no cars on the island, so visitors are free to meander along the roads on bicycles or golf carts. Other than the tiny, picturesque harbour, the country club and the Old Baldy Lighthouse, the main attractions are the sun, the sand and the quiet.
