Birdwatching Karmøy (Sandhåland observation shelter)

  •  /  km From You
Overview

Karmøy is a 30 km long island on the outer coast, separated from the mainland with narrow sounds to the north and east. However, it appears like a peninsula sticking out into the Boknafjord, concentrating birds which follow the coast towards the south. The terrain on Karmøy is predominantly rocky heathland with scattered marshes and grazing pastures, as is typical of the outer coast in this region. At Sandhåland, an observation shelter is raised from which the migration of seabirds along the coast can be monitored, partiuclarly in strong winds from the west.
