About Bald Head Island Center for Wellness
Bald Head Island is a wellness center offers wellness retreats that happen certain times throughout the year.
In 2018, there is a five-day wellness retreat May 11th through May 16th. There is also a Briday BLISS Fitness Camp, ‘Beat the Sugar Blues’ Detox Program, and 2018 ‘Eco-Friendly’ Wellness Program, at different times.
Wellness retreats at Bald Head Island, an area of land of the east-coast of North Carolina, focus on teaching healthy tips for long-term benefits. Each wellness retreat is confined to a small number of individuals, with attendance kept to 10 members or fewer. Nutrition plans and exercise routines are tailored to each guest, as they focus on individualized attention.
Since Bald Head is located on an island, guests must take a 20-minute ride in a ferry across Cape Fear to reach Bald Head Island. Wilmington International Airport is the closest commercial airport to Bald Head Island.
