PICTURES from TJØME

Tjøme claims to have most sunny days in the year! The three main islands, Tjøme, Brøtsø and Hvasser together with lots of small islands with sheltered harbours is a well known holiday paradise.

Hvasser, billedbanken

Hvasser with the village of Sandøsund also has a unique contact with the skerries and the sea. In Sandøsund there is a fish quay with sale of fish. There is also a pilot-boat harbour. The pilot, Severin Evensen from Tjøme, had the honour of piloting King Håkon VII to Oslo when he came to Norway in 1905.

South of Hvasser there are good rambling and bathing possibilities. On the northern part of the island is the well known bathing beach, Lilleskagen.
