Just two miles off North Carolina's southern coast, Bald Head Island offers a way of life unlike anywhere else. The island is home to Old Baldy, the state's oldest lighthouse, and is a favorite nesting ground for loggerhead turtles. Here, history and nature take top billing, along with traditional seaside pastimes like fishing, golfing and beach combing.
You'll travel to Bald Head by passenger ferry or private boat. Once here, you'll use a golf cart to travel from one picturesque setting to the next--beaches, marshes and maritime forest.
