About Egersund

The island of Eigerøy acts as a natural break-water shielding the mainland from the rough waves coming from the North Sea. It provides welcome shelter for sailors on the exposed coast between Lista and North Jæren and has provided excellent conditions for recreational sailing, fishing and shipping for centuries, and has helped put Egersund on the map as one of the biggest fishing ports in Norway.
