FARSUND TOWN

The municipality of Farsund has approximately 9.200 inhabitants. Shipping, fishing and agriculture have been the main industries in the area. Farsund was already recognized as a trading centre in 1795, and in 1995 celebrated its 200-years jubilee with town status.

Farsund´s harbour for visiting boats lies in the centre of the town, with shops, bank, post office, cafés and restaurants within easy reach. It has 40-60 moorings with access to water, electric power, sanitary facilities, refuelling, hiring of boats and diving equipment. The Toruist Information Office is approximately 50-60 meteres from the main quay. Some of the islands nearby have their own quays, toilets and grilling facilities.
