Few if any areas along the East Coast can compare to North Carolina’s stunning Outer Banks in terms of pure, spectacular beauty and beach appeal. Salvo, NC, just 30 miles north of the Cape Hatteras lighthouse and just minutes from Rodanthe and Avon’s iconic piers, is one of just a handful of small Hatteras Island towns, and one of North Carolina’s most hidden of coastal gems. With a limited number of commercial businesses and mile upon mile of pristine scenery, this community stretching from the Atlantic on the East to the rich waters of Pamlico Sound to the West is charming and unspoiled, and quickly becoming one of the barrier islands’ most desirable vacation spots.
Outer Banks Beauty
Salvo’s wide, sandy beaches and prime location between ocean and sound make it the ideal destination for swimming, fishing, and lounging on mile upon mile of uninterrupted sands. Blessed by a comfortable average temperature of 62 degrees and remarkably beautiful natural surroundings, Salvo offers guests and residents a lifestyle that is built around relaxation, fun and family time, with recreational activities ranging from camping, kiteboarding and kayaking to biking, paddle boarding, jet skiing and surfing.
Nature-lovers enjoy the pelicans, seagulls and sand pipers often seen at the water’s edge and the occasional whale or porpoise when it appears offshore in warm Gulf Stream waters that also provide some of the most spectacular deep sea fishing in the world. Adventurous tourists and sport fishermen come from far and wide to try their hands at the thrilling experience of catching – and sometimes releasing, depending on time of year and fishing limits – a swordfish, sailfish, wahoo or blue marlin. Pamlico sound offers prime fishing opportunities of its own, for tarpon, drum, striped bass and mullet; oysters and blue crabs are also plentiful here.
