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...More

Once again thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous waves of the Outer Banks. Not overcrowded & relatively clear water. Good for an easy-going vacation. As most would say, the biggest bummer was the traffic onto & off of the island.

Salvo beach day use area is a great alternative to the ocean side beaches. The water is calm and good for younger kids. Lots of water sports like wind surfing, kite surfing ect. There are bathrooms but not much else for amenities. Come prepared

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....More
