One of Eastern North Carolina's Best-Kept Secrets

Salvo, Waves, and Rodanthe are known by locals as the tri-villages. The three towns run together without a definitive border as if they were one village. Together they are a charming community with many beautiful vacation homes, with excellent soundside access for kiteboarding and windsurfing, and in close proximity to the National Wildlife Refuge for those who enjoy bird watching.

Salvo Day Use Area is at the southern most end of Salvo. It is a little hangout spot on the sound perfect for picnicking, fishing, launching your kiteboard or paddleboard, kayaking, swimming or just hanging out in the sun. Ramp 23 is also at the south end of Salvo making for easy access to beach driving.
