Stunning part of Norway - stunning beaches and scenery. We visited on a warm day in March and it was lovely with a touch of chill from the sea breeze. In Summer i presume it would be a great place to spend a few hours.

I live on this island and I've been travelling the world but you won't find beaches more beautyful than this. To bad the climate is a bit cold and you can rarely take a bath without freezing half to death.

I recomend to go to Sandvesanden even though it's further. It's a small, lovely beach, with beautiful view.

The beaches on Karmøy are very clean, with shellsand that is extremly soft and comfortable. The weather is usually rough, and the water temperature is low, as this is the norther sea. But for walks, and relaxsation these beaches are perfect.

Absolutely stunning beaches in Norway. Water is a bit cold, but not much colder than in So Cal. Lovely to sit and contemplate, or to dip your feet in the water.

The Crystal clear wather. The white sands, the sound of waves hitting shore and the horizon. This is what you get on Karmoy beaches. Get dressed for what ever nature brings you. Bring buckets and shuffels. Play in the sand and imagine what it looks...More

In the the main, I guess when we mention Karmøy's beaches, we are talking of Åkresanden, the local beach adjacent to the town of Åkrehamm. I was there yesterday during the day with near deserted beaches. In 25 deg. you could be forgiven for thinking...More
