Description

Sandsfjorden is located in Suldal in Ryfylke and goes from the southwest to the municipal center Sand in the northeast. Saudafjorden is about 25 km long.

The scenery along the fjord is spectacular. At the entrance to Sandsfjorden lies the flat, beautiful Foldøynå. The island is 1,1 square kilometers and consists of cultivate land. Historical interesting Hebnes is located on the north of the fjord, while the beautiful beach town is situated in the south. Further north lies several small islands in the fjord. It’s all very idyllic for boat enthusiasts.

The beach town Sand is the municipal center in Suldal municipal city and is one of three ancient beach locations in Ryfylke. South of Sand is Lovrafjorden, where there is a little picnic area with view down to the fjord in both directions.

Right above Sand is Ropeid where the ferry crosses the fjord. There is a new waiting area, built as a part of the National tourist route Ryfylke. The ferry is decorated with quotes from children’s book author Rasmus Løland.

Sandsfjorden is congested with large ships to Jelsa and the metal industry in Sauda. Also speed boat transportation.

During the summer one can see sailing ships in the waters, “Brødrene af Sand” is a restored sloop that is related to Ryfylkemuseet at Sand.

For Sandsfjorden and Saudafjorden there is an existing cultural boat map published by Ryfylkemuseet in 2008.
