Just two nautical miles off North Carolina’s southern coast, Bald Head Island offers a true change of pace. It’s a place where you come to unwind, enjoy the company of family and friends, and celebrate traditional seaside pastimes. Here, time is measured by the ebb and flow of the tide, rather than clocks or calendars. You’ll arrive by passenger ferry, then travel the island by golf cart, bike or on foot, savoring an unhurried way of life we call “Island Time.”
Hand-picked by the magazine’s editors, Southern Living Inspired Communities embrace the natural beauty of the Southern landscape, display the best of Southern Living inspired architecture, and contain environments that foster communal gatherings. Cape Fear Station on Bald Head Island joins a handful of elite communities that hold this designation.
