Bald Head Island, NC


We all know that Bald Head is a beautiful summer destination spot. We can find ourselves this time of year, a little late getting a house booked, scrounging the web for whatever remnants of availability in July we can discover. What if I told you that you may be missing out on one of the most special times of year? MAY! With tons of availability in many of our most desired homes, booking with Tiffany’s in the offseason offers a wide variety of advantages.

Often overlooked is the weather. While June, July, and August bring the ideal beach weather, it does tend to get a little toasty on occasion. May is the perfect balance. The temperature rests just perfectly for lounging and swimming as well as walking and biking. Another net positive, finding a good place to settle down on East Beach this time of year is a breeze. No struggle for parking, or lugging beach chairs, umbrellas and Cerveza miles down a packed beach looking for a slim slice of sand to call your own. 

Discover a quieter Bald Head. Take advantage of the island’s bike paths to pedal through lush forests and coastal marshes, spotting wildlife along the way. Get your bike at Coastal Urge! Don’t miss a visit to Old Baldy, North Carolina’s oldest lighthouse, where you can climb to the top for panoramic views of the island and beyond. Bald Head Island offers abundant opportunities for adventure. Book a kayak at Riverside and try your hand at kayaking through winding creeks, paddleboarding along calm waters, or hit up the Conservancy and embark on a guided nature tour to learn about the island’s rich ecosystem.

Bald Head Island celebrates Memorial Day with reverence and festivity. Join in special events organized by the community, such as flag-raising ceremonies or gatherings to honor veterans. Local businesses and restaurants often host themed events and offer special menus, providing a taste of island hospitality.

Above all, Memorial Day on Bald Head Island is about unwinding and connecting with nature. Spend lazy afternoons on the beach, immerse yourself in a good book, or simply revel in the tranquility of your surroundings. Indulge in fresh seafood dinners at local eateries such as Jule’s, Jailhouse, or the brand new restaurant in the marina Boat house!
