Hellestøstranden beach

Hellestøstranden beach is a universally accessible recreational area. The sand dunes here are of great national value.

On warm and nice summer days, the beach at Hellestø is the perfect spot for sun-seeking people. In winter and autumn, people like to come here to witness the particular light in these parts of the country, as well as the powerful elements that are present when strong winds are pounding against the beach.

Popular activities are swimming, beach walking and the annual kite festival. You can also experience the Hellestøfjell (mountain), a familiar beacon for the boating people. The Hellestøfjell is 92 metres above sea level. The beach is located southwest of the Stavanger International Airport, Sola. From the beach, you can spot the Feistein lighthouse in the open sea.
