Salvo is a gorgeous strip of sand below Rodanthe as you travel down scenic Hwy 12, towards Hatteras. The beach is pristine, and not very well known, but for four wheel drive enthusiasts its a dream come true. Sometimes you are the only one there. There are no attractions other than the Atlantic and a convenience store or two, but... More

Visited and camped at the KOA in the Outer Banks, not only was the KOA accomodations outstanding and clean but the Beaches are beautiful, clean and not so crowded. If you like beaches and you like less crowds... definitely must visit the Outer Banks.

Our 1st trip here we had a house on the wrong side of huge dunes, even for our younger family with us, it was a trek to cross over and instead of going everyday a couple of times or more to the Beach, we were lucky to go once a day, and no late night strolls on the beach, this... More

I love this area so much more than the northern part of OBX. We were there in the fall, so it may not be the best representation, but it was quiet, quiet, quiet! I seriously counted 20 people as far as my eyes could see north or south. We walked for a couple miles south of where we entered the... More

We rented a house in Salvo with 2 old college roommates of mine and their spouses. It is so peaceful in the Salvo area. A couple of stores, galleries, cafes and pizza within a short drive. It is a 20-30 min. drive north or south to a larger selection of food, stores, etc. But this is a wonderful location to... More

We visited the day use park on the Sound side, just south of Salvo. It was a great little park with picnic tables it is accessible by walking or biking from Salvo or by car. The hurricane hit it hard and the shower and bathrooms were closed while we were there. Excellent sunsets. You can kayak, fish if you know... More

We are going to Salvo in spring with our longboards to surf. The rental in not on the beach. Is there public parking with beach access ? Or what is the best and easiest way to bring all the gear to the beach?.....i guess drop everything off with the car....return the car to the house....and walk. Any advise is appreciated.... More
