Outer Banks: Waves

Waves Community

Waves is known as part of the tri-villages and is located on the northern area of Hatteras Island between Rodanthe and Salvo. Located on a narrow strip of land nestle between the Atlantic Ocean and the Pamlico Sound, Waves is full of adventure. The off-shore winds make this destination a kiteboarding and windsurfers dream and hosts one of the top locations in the world for water sport enthusiasts.

This tiny community has a lot of charm and local flair including several locally-owned restaurants, cafes and a small market. If you are planning on stocking a beach house, visit the nearby grocery store in Avon or specialty shops found north of Whalebone Junction.
