The Fitjar islands offer unique scenery, and constitute an important resource for the municipality. Because of the special heather moors, proposals have been made to turn the area into a national park. Fitjar consists of a gathering of islands and rocks divided by shallow straits and channels. Traditional shipping routes pass through the area, and the municipality contains several trading posts dating back as far as 1648. The Fitjar islands are a popular boating destination.
