Welcome to Rodanthe - Waves - Salvo, North Carolina

While traveling to Hatteras Island from the north you will first cross over the Oregon Inlet bridge on Rt. 12 and then enter the Pea Island US Fish and Wildlife Sanctuary. Peaceful Rodanthe will be the first Hatteras Island village at the north end of the island. Although these three villages are each separate, it will be difficult to tell when you leave one and enter the next. One thing that can be said for sure though is that all three of our little villages have always been outdoor enthusiast friendly and they are as peaceful and quiet as you will find anywhere. Whether you prefer fishing, surfing, beachcombing, jogging, kiteboarding, shell hunting, sunbathing or just plain sitting on your lounge chair sipping a drink and relaxing, this is a place that you can do it.

Our Village Names

This area of Rodanthe, Waves and Salvo were three distinct early settlements once referred to as the Chicamacomico Banks. Believe it or not, this area was heavily wooded and these three small settlements were separated by creeks and bridges only.
