The Club

There are so many things to love about the Shoals Club – lounging by the pool, strolling out to the Cape Fear Point, savoring fresh seafood while enjoying an unmatched view of the ocean. Conveniences like locker rooms, towel service and poolside food and beverage service make spending the entire day at the beach a breeze. Family activities and kid-friendly holiday parties create opportunities for all ages to relax, celebrate and enjoy time together. The Shoals Club is open seasonally from March through November. Access to the Shoals Club is made available through a membership attached to a Bald Head Island property. Temporary Memberships are available, for a fee, to guests staying in the home of a Shoals Club member. Learn more about temporary membership.


In the tradition of the large pavilions that once anchored the social life of many 19th century beach towns, the Shoals Club was designed to be a casual, comfortable beach club worthy of its spectacular cape side setting. More



Recreation options at the Shoals Club are endless, from splashing in the Atlantic, to lounging by the pool, to dancing the night away to live music. No matter your age or interest, you'll find fun waiting for you at the Shoals Club. More

Lounge chairs, umbrellas and pool side towel service are available daily.

Due to North Carolina COVID-19 regulations, pool areas are open at 50% regular capacity for safe social distancing and reservations will be  required for the 2021 season.  Reservations may be made by calling the front office at 910-454-4888 and can be made two days in advance of your desired date. Guest Members may reserve up to one time slot per day, per membership. Pools are open 10am-6pm with two-hour reservation time slots. (10:00, 11, Noon, 1, and 2pm). The Shoals Club pools will have an open/free swim from 4pm-6pm daily, on a first come/first serve basis, based on availability within our capacity limits.  Due to limited capacity, we are often unable to accommodate same day pool reservation requests. The maximum reservation size is 10 people. We ask for patience and understanding during COVID-19. If you are unable to come for your reservation, please cancel at least three hours prior to your reservation to allow another family on the waitlist to enjoy the pool. All late cancellations and reservation no-shows may lose reservation access for the rest of your stay. Pools will maintain high water quality with proper chemical levels, which kill the Coronavirus.
