  • She's a beauty! Take time to visit the old and new location. Gift shop is a must see. Wasn't able to climb in July or November but I will one day ...definitely make this part of your OBX experience 
  • As we were headed to dinner we pulled off into Salvo to view the sunset. Beautiful view of the sound and the sun as it set for the evening.

  • Campgrounds are maintained Driving on the beach is the way to go. All the gear at your fingertips. The Rangers are great. We spoke with Ranger Brian at length. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and informative. Bring bug spray and sunscreen a sun shade and cooler also make me happy.
  • Beautiful beach where you can get permits to have fires on at night! Just beware there will be crabs EVERYWHERE! We didn't realize there was a crab sanctuary just north. creepy but still kind of cool to see how many crabs there were!
  • Awesome beach and is less crowded than the northern OBX beaches.
  • We just love the fact that is not to crowded, peaceful and is a beautiful beach!!
  • Beautiful spot! Love the National Seashore! A must-see.
