Bald Head Island


Since the days of notorious pirates like Blackbeard and Stede Bonnet, Bald Head Island has been attracting curious explorers. Reachable only by ferry or private boat, Bald Head Island is now the perfect island retreat to get away from the everyday. This is everything you love about an unplugged beach stay – and all your vacation needs are right here on the island.


Explore this no-cars-allowed island by bike, boat or golf cart and you'll find yourself amidst varied natural landscapes, including spectacular sand dunes hiding spacious beach homes, pristine beaches, maritime forests and salt marshes teeming with wildlife. The preserved and conservation-friendly island is home to one of the largest sea turtle nesting sites in North Carolina and is listed as one of the National Marine Fisheries Service's "index beaches."


Presiding over it all stands Old Baldy, the iconic, stout brick lighthouse and the oldest standing lighthouse in North Carolina. The breathtaking view from the top is undoubtedly worth the 108-step climb to get there. It's perhaps the best perspective to see that our slightly upscale and always inviting Bald Head Island is as unspoiled as it is charming.
