Freshen up with a brisk walk
There is nothing quite like a visit to our long, silky bathing beaches on a fine summer’s day. Or a brisk walk along Åkrasanden with the wind in your face! Our local “Costa del Sol” offers pearly sands and clear waters, ideal for swimming, sand castles and kite flying.

Raking for crab?
Raking crab is one local pursuit that combines a magical evening with the reward of a scrumptious dinner. Take your bucket and rake, powerful torch and good spirits.
Boiling crab: Fill a large pot with water, adding equal quantities of salt and sugar. Bring to boil. Submerge crab in pot allowing 20 minutes to cook. Enjoy on a slice of bread with mayonnaise, pickled gherkins and lemon juice. Delicious!
Discover the archipelago in Skudeneshavn
During summer you can loan a small boat for free. It fits 4 adults or 2 adults and 3-4 smaller children. Life jackets will be required and are also available (free).
Lindøy Recreation Area
A wonderful light envelope this retreat in Førdesfjorden, just south of Røyksund. Lindøy is frequented by boating tourists, who enjoy the heather moors, tiny copses, beaches and bathing spots. A tall lavvo tent provides shelter, and there is a barbeque area where guests can brew coffee. Lindøy is a popular berry-picking destination in late summer, when blueberries and cranberries abound. The fjord offers excellent fishing – and with a little luck you could land a sea trout. Canoerental and lavvo.
Geocaching Nature experiences, treasure hunting and technology. On Karmøy there are many hidden caches that can be discovered, alone or together, all year round.
