world´s End, verdens ende



From Nøtterøy we cross Vrengen Bridge over to Tjøme, an island municipality furthest out in the Oslofjord towards tha fresh seas of the Skagerrak.

The three main islands, Tjøme, Brøtsø and Hvasser together with lots of small islands with sheltered harbours is a well known holiday paradise where one can experience good bathing and fishing possibilities during the summer´s long and sunny days. Tjøme claims to have most sunny days in the year! Tjøme´s nature and contact with the skerries and the sea.


  "World´s End" lies furthest south on Tjøme. The area has fantastic views towards the Skagerrak. Superb bathing and fishing possibilities from smooth rocks and islands. The name "World´s End" originated amongst travellers here in the beginning of the 20th century. Before that the area was best known as vantage point for pilots looking for ships.

The well known basket lighthouse and the resturant were built in 1932. The basket lighthouse can be seen, built as a tourist attraction in 1932, using drift bouilders from Tjøme.

The long pier from the mainland out towards the small islands forms a protected harbour basin. Here lies Badeplattform one of Tjøme´s largest Marina. There is also a kiosk and grill area. Several fishermen from Tjøme have their boats here. Post from Verdens Ende is stamped with a special post-mark.

Moutmarka is the culture landscape along the World´s End. Here you find slopes of naked rock and plains with sloescrubs. Nature trails. Information board. Maps for sale. No camping.




Tjøme is also an attraction for those who seek the first sign of spring or the beautiful colours of autumn. The foaming spray from a raging sea over the rocks at Verdens End or the clear, calm days of winter can be a worth while experience. Do not forget to taste the unforgettable, fresh Tjøme cod or fresh shrimps.

Engø Gård serves gourmet meals. Engø Gård has wine cellar of more than 2500 bottles representing around 400 labels.

Tjøme Golfclub is a 9 hole golf course. A fun and popular course in the summer. Follow the main road to Tjøme and you will see the course on your right side with Tjøme Church.
