Description

Bragdøya is a public open space of 925 000 square meters . The island lies like a green park in an otherwise busy harbor with ship traffic, industrial and residential areas on multiple sides. The island appears today as an island that has much to offer cultural and outdoor enthusiasts. The old landscape is open and the old picturesque roads and trails make it easy to find the idyllic swimming spots on the south side of the island.

Bragdøya Kystlag has created a center of culture in and around the old warehouses on the north side of the island. In Saltebua they have established a mackerel exhibition that recreates the environment around the mackerel fishery on the south coast of the past.
