The Jæren beaches - protected landscape area & Hope Spot

  • Jærstrendene, KLEPPE
  • +47 51859200
  •  /  km From You

Jærstrendene (the beaches of Jæren) stretches from Tungenes in the north to Sirevåg in the south with a total length of 70 kilometres. You'll find a mixture of sand beaches, pebble beaches and a moraine coast. What's distinctive is that there are no skerries between the land and the open sea.

Explore Norway's longest sand beaches along the coastline of Jæren, and be amazed at the raw forces of nature defining the area. In both good weather and bad weather, the experience will be rewarding (dress accordingly). Experience the sky, sea, waves, and animal and plant life in fine-tuned interaction.
Landscape conservation area
The beaches of Jæren are part of a landscape conservation area, and parts of the beaches are also protected in terms of plant and birdlife. Four of the plants found in the area are endangered; marsh helleborine, saw-wort, northern marsh orchid and sea holly. All visits must occur on foot.
Hope Spot
The Jæren coast is moreover acknowledged as an international "Hope Spot" by the organisation Mission Blue. The coastline is defined as an area critical to the ocean's health - our earth's blue heart.
