Bald Head Island Professional Review and Guide
"Environmentalists balk at being too positive about upscale private islands, but Bald Head is a rarity. The exclusive resort is flanked by an extensive, well-preserved virgin
forest of trees up to 300 years old, the state’s best example of mature maritime forest where live oaks spread their massive, wind-gnarled crowns.
The public can spend the night here—many of the island’s homes and condos can be rented—which gives guests temporary access to Bald Head Island Club amenities (golf course, tennis, swimming pool, marina, a fine dining room). You can also spend the day on the island—just for the cost of a ferry ride. There are no cars on Bald Head Island, so an electric shuttle meets the ferry."
