Husnes is the commercial hub of the municipality, with shops, services, cafés, a hotel, library and cultural centre. Husnes Cultural Centre houses a cinema and has a rich programme of cultural events.
The village is in an idyllic location beside Opsangervatnet lake. There are some lovely trails around the lake, and even a nice beach virtually in the centre of the village. There are seats beside the trail, where you can take a break beside the water. If you would prefer a longer hike, there are plenty of superb waymarked hiking trails in the area.
Husnes Marina is also close to Husnes village centre. Husnes is not far from Rosendal and Halsnøy.
