Bud is an active and charming fishing village that is beautifully situated out to sea and offers magnificent coastal nature. The fishing village has a rich history, and in the 16th century Bud was one of the largest trading venues between Bergen and Trondheim. There are several good fish restaurants in Bud.
Make a stop at Ergan Kystfort, a war history museum built around the German coastal fort of World War II, and the Coastal Museum, which is a two-story cultural history exhibition. In the middle of Bud lies a bird mountain which during the breeding season houses a colony of black-legged kittiwakes. You can also walk the "coastal path" with a number of information boards telling of Bud's history.
