Male port is an old fishing port. Here it was shipbuilding, guest house and krambu. there is bathing place 300 meters away here is great scenery with many islets and reefs. Åkrehamn is not far away with white beaches.
“Spacious, atmospheric top floor of what feels like a huge wooden boathouse, complete with an incredible array of maritime artefacts, re-claimed nautical features and even a hammock made from a canvas mainsail. The beds are comfy (if all with single mattresses), the amenities are plentiful and the view out across the rocky inlet towards the North Sea is incredible - especially towards sunset. If you’re exploring Haugesund / Karmøy, it’s a great base (off the beaten track and near beaches more akin to the Isles of Scilly than Norway!) - and it’s within reach of the Fjords to the east, too (10 mins to Akrehamn, 25 mins to Haugesund, 1.5 hours to the Langfoss waterfall and 2-2.5 hours the edge of Folgefanna).”

“Karl is a very nice person, he answered all my messages so quickly and he drove us from the bus station to the house. The house was also perfect, it had everything we needed. The views from the balcony/deck to the port were beautiful, it was decorated with a Christmas tree and lights and had a beautiful spacious bathroom that seemed to have a heated floor. They have Netflix so we could watch some movies when we came back from visiting and he left us some snacks, coffee and tea. By far the best place we stayed during our vacations.”

“Leiv made our stay in Veavågen unforgettable. He is a great host and really helpful. He even came to the bus station to pick us up and also drive us to the station when we left. Thank you very much, Leiv. We had a great time in the charming apartment which is right next to the sea, it is fantastic to wake up in the morning and have a look to the seaside from your apartment. Veavågen is a quiet place and the right place to calm down during a long journey through Norway. We had luck that the weather was good and so we went to Akrasanden Beach which is about 10 minutes by bus (bus runs every hour and bus station is just 5 minutes walking distance). On the island Karmoy is another nice beach in the south (Leiv told us about), so if you want to know what you can do during your stay, ask Leiv, we are sure he will help you with all questions, so he did with us.”
