This beach was quiet and small but perfect for relaxing. There is a grass area which has picnic tables and then it goes to a beach area perfect for reading a good book.

We went here after a rainy morning and it was a bit cool heading there, but the dunes blocked the wind once we got on the beach. The waves were somewhat scary for our nine year old, so put his life jacket on, but it...More

Very central to the northern OBX and Hatteras/Ocracoke areas. Perfect location for day trips Lots of activities on sound side or ocean side. Almost no commercialization here. Great family beach and perfect for family reunions.

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....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.
