Bald Head Island - Escaping from the stress in your life is just a ferry ride away. When you arrive at the Bald Head Island Ferry Terminal located in the Indigo Plantation Marina at 9th Street in Southport, it's like stepping into another time zone - a slower, less stressful one. After unloading and parking your vehicle you will board your passenger ferry for a short 20 minute trip to the island. A golf cart tram will whisk you away to your cottage, condo or inn where your week or weekend of rest and relaxation can begin. Can't stay overnight? Go over for the day either on your own or with the organized Historic Tour, with or without lunch or dinner. Reservations are strongly encouraged. Bald Head Island is a resort. Amenities include: championship golf course, clubhouse facilities, cr...
