The name itself has an interesting meaning: "an island which acts as a screen against the sea". The blend of sea-atmosphere, charming fishing villages and long history give Karmøy a unique character. Modern history has also found its place here and has heen built up in close harmony with the more traditional activities of fishing and agriculture.

The south of Karmøy offers mile after mile of beautiful heathland and white, sandy beaches.
