Family Summer Vacation

Bald Head Island is a vacation destination inviting children to put down the technology and unplug. On the Island children connect with their families by exploring the Island, riding bikes, shelling the beaches and playing board games. Bald Head inspires a simpler time of vacationing that older generations knew as children. Imagine a day watching the sunrise on East Beach, breakfast in your own gourmet kitchen, an afternoon of sandcastles, to dinner in the Harbour and ice cream at sunset! Your children/grand-children will dream sweet Island dreams while you’re enjoying a glass of wine  and star gazing.

Couples Retreat

Girls Weekend

Make an extended getaway out of your Book Club, Reality TV parties, Game Nights or your usual Wine Dinners! Grab the girls and come to the Island.
