Overview:

You'll be surrounded by the welcoming foliage and soothing sounds of nature though never far from the surf. Explore the woods and you'll encounter just why the maritime forest is known as the  'climax community' for barrier islands such as Bald Head Island.This habitat with its mix of old growth trees, shrubs and more developed soils, binds the sand providing the greatest stability and erosion control of any barrier island habitat. Live oaks (Quercus virginiana) are the largest of trees on Bald Head Island and therefore habitat providers for a multitude of species- all of which will be your neighbors during your stay in the forest!
