Description

Silda is an old fishing community, which in its heyday had a population of 150 who made a living from fishing and farming. Its current winter population is only about 30, while in summer it is host to several hundred people, staying in holiday houses and cabins. The island has a very special restaurant perched on a rock out in the southern harbour. There are also cabins for rent there.

The impressive jetty in Silda´s northern harbour was started in the 1860s and completed in the 20th century. Boating people will find a sheltered, well-equipped guest marina in the northern harbour with amenities such as showers, washing machine/ tumble drier and electricity.

With the exception of a few tractors, the island is "car free", but it has good cycling and walking tracks, footpaths and excellent walking terrain. A regular boat service runs to and from Måløy several times a day.
