While Salvo is the southernmost town of the tri-village community, Salvo does not simply blend in with Waves, but has a distinct character and tone. A slower and very relaxed area, Salvo has a true local feel as it is mostly a residential community. Like many of the Outer Banks towns, Salvo was not always called such. It was known as Clarksville until the beginning of the twentieth century when a post office was built and the name changed. Even more than a century later the post office still stands on NC Highway 12, a small white structure with blue and red trim (in patriotic decor). The local post office now resides in Waves, but the small building reminds locals and visitors of a quieter time.

If relaxation and peace is what you're in the mood for, you'll find it in Salvo. The beauty of the area abounds with white sandy beaches, beautiful blue waters and many sand hills. Wildlife also abounds, you can watch the birds as they search for breakfast out on the calm seas. Or jump right in the ocean and find an adventure of your own with Kite boarding and wind surfing the area's famous for. Rent a canoe and explore the wildlife and beauty of the Sound. Grab a fishing pole and find a spot to spend your day catching fish, crabs and more. Unspoiled land to the south ensures you can enjoy a day on the beach and not see anyone for miles.
