Description

The islands Ormøya and Malmøya are located just east of the city centre, and are connected to the mainland by bridge. A bus from the city centre gets you here in 10 minutes.

To get to Ormøya, you cross Ormsundbrua - a beautiful wrought-iron bridge from 1922. The island has beautiful Swiss-style houses from the 1860s and 1870s, and Ormøy church from 1892 was built in the same style.

From Ormøya another bridge takes you to the larger island Malmøya. In the south end of Malmøya you find Solvikbukta with a sandy beach and toilets etc. It is a 1-km walk from the bus stop to the beach. There are also some parking possibilities. Except from north and south on the island, the coastline is generally not available.

Malmøya has lush forests and parts of the island is a nature reserve. You are not allowed to camp or light a fire on the island! Grills can only be used on gravel or sand.
