“So much elbow room”
Review of Salvo Beach

Salvo Beach
Ranked #2 of 4 things to do in Salvo
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 August 2016

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 and the waves. Now, if you are used to the Jersey Shore or Delaware/Maryland beaches, the OBX waters are something you may never have experienced and you want to have a few hands on deck if you are taking small children to these beaches, as a bad day at the Jersey shore is a moderate yellow day in OBX. The waters are beautiful but you need to pay attention to rip currents and the waves will give you a good work out. We will be back again, many times I can only hope for.

I loved this beach! Family friendly. Pet friendly. Loved hanging out all day with our crazy family! Can't wait to go back next year.

Pretty beach. Fun spot for the whole family
But there was a far drive to the closest food store only complaint. Would love to go again

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.
