About the Island
Bald Head Island rests approximately two miles from the North Carolina coast near the charming city of Southport. This secluded paradise is accessible only by passenger ferry or private boat. Golf carts are the primary mode of transportation.
Absent from Bald Head Island are automobiles, crowded beaches and high rises. Instead, long stretches of sand, beautiful marshland and an enormous maritime forest wait patiently for discovery. Not merely a place, Bald Head Island is an experience that creates distinctive impressions upon its guests, lasting memories that urge them to return year after year.
The Marsh Harbour Inn, overlooking the marina, is the perfect place to experience the best of Bald Head Island. Click Here for Video Tour
