Description

Lies on the northern point of Jæren. Rich in cultural sites from the Stone Age up until World War II.

A walk along the beaches from Viste and out to Tungenes will reveal seven thousand years' of history from the Stone Age settlement site Svarthola, via burial mounds and stone monuments that are several millenna younger, century-old stone boathouses, drystone fences, World War II bunkers and artillery installations. Out at Tungenes Lighthouse there are additional cultural sites preserved.

In Tungevågen, there are remnants of a hamlet that existed into the 20th century; a stone boathouse has been restored as the only remaining building from that time. Just by the lighthouse are the ruins of a big gun emplacement from World War II. Otherwise a number of old drystone fences have been restored.
