Fields and the harbour
Life in Åkrehamn is still characterised by its location facing the North Sea. Fishermen still live in Åkrehamn and farmers still cultivate the land, yet the area now has town status. Åkrehamn looks like a small town with urban features, and is just 30 minutes by car from Haugesund.
Åkrehamn is where you will find the well-known and exquisite Åkrasanden beach. Åkrasanden beach is made up of a row of seven coves with beautiful white sand and crystal-clear turquoise waters. Along the beach you can wander through historic surroundings with traces of Vikings, a rich flora and wonderful natural phenomena such as Dueglåp.
