The beaches are clean and uncrowded. There are no lifeguards which was ok for my kids because they are disciplined and can swim. If you let your kids do what they want and not watch them then you better head to a life guarded beach. They will be washed out to sea.

We love the Outer Banks but, then again, what is there not to love! Fresh air and the quiet peaceful laid back atmosphere of Salvo. The beach is truly uncrowded, especially when you may be used to the Jersey Shore or even the Delaware/Maryland beaches. You only have a few rules to follow but outside that, just enjoy the sunshine... More

We were in search of a quiet beach getaway and Salvo did not dissapoint! We particularly enjoyed the soothing sound of the ocean and star gazing during our stay. The night sky is AMAZING here. No light pollution makes for wonderful night sky photography opportunities.

I keep stopping at every beach I come to just to see if there's any difference from all the others in the area plus the fact I want to know I have been there. This is a beautiful place, but it's not much different than all the other beautiful beaches around here.

Very comfortable clean beach house with semi ocean front views. Loved the decks, hot tub and pool. The house is well stocked and met our every need. There is a little hike to beach access and crossing the dunes can be difficult - but well worth any effort. Almost like having our own private beach. Beautiful star-lit sky and a... More
