Description

Entirely out by the sea, farthest of Levang Stangnes lies. In the end of 1600s the government and the local authority bought the property as a recreational area. Among naked stones and soil patches there is a small two-storey house. It was built in the end of 1870s, and there had always been a fisherman living in the house. Now Kragerø and Oppland Tourist Association is using the property.

Stangnes is located at Portørveien, and a sign shows entrance from the road. The house is open every Sunday and Saturday in all summer. Here you have good swimming opportunities at beaches, and you can buy mineral water, coffee and waffles. Tourist Association has also a rowboat to rent.

In 1995 Stangnes got a prize of NOK 10,000 for the best recreational area in Telemark. In 2005 Stangnes became a part of the European Geo Park.
