Originally called Clarks or Clarksville, the village of Salvo received its name in the most fascinating way. Local legends state that during the Civil War a sailor aboard a Union ship passing off the coast of Hatteras Island spied the town of Clarks, but could not locate a name the map. The sailor informed his captain, who famously said, "Give it a salvo anyway." The sailor then wrote "Salvo" on the map to mark the North Carolina town. Salvo officially received its name in 1901 when the town built its first post office.
Visitors to Salvo will find fisherman hard at work just as they were generations ago, along with stacked crab pots and fish boxes. The pace of life is slower, with visitors finding the perfect mix of relaxation and excitement, as there are still many Outer Banks activities to explore. Salvo visitors enjoy white sandy beaches, blue waters and sand hills. Ideal activities include: fishing, wind surfing, kite boarding, canoeing and exploring the sound.
