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.
In Egersund you’ll find multiple options for accomodation. There is one hotel in town - Grand Egersund, located at the very center. The hotel is part of De Historiske, a historical hotel concept in Norway and has good capacity.
With it's long coast line Dalane has built a close association with the sea and the harvesting of its resources. Sports-fishermen from Europe have discovered just how good the catches can be in Dalane. In addition to the superior seafishing facilities some of Norway’s best salmon-rivers run through the area.
