WORLD´S END

"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 restsurant 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 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.
