Since time immemorial, the staple industries in Selje municipality have been fishing and farming, now augmented by fish breeding, boat building, ready-made clothing manufacture, commerce, and service industries. Selje´s administrative centre lies along the long, sandy beach of Seljesanden. Here there is a fine harbour for small boats, the last before the Sea of Stad. An express boat service runs daily between Selje and Bergen.

Hoddevik is a village on the Outer Stadlandet. Hoddevik is today best known for a mile-long sandy beach that is considered to be one of Norway´s best surfespots. In fact, many will say that it is one of the world´s best! In Hoddevik it is a year round activity when it comes to surfing.

On the island of Selja, a 15-minute boat trip from Selje, lie the ruins of Selje Monastery, its tower still intact. Selja Island was the landing place of the Irish princess Sunniva. Visitors may view the cave where she was martyred, and the ruins of a church and Benedictine monastery from 1103 AD. Selje was one of the first three episcopal sees in Norway. After the diocese was moved to Bergen, monks took over the church, which was later destroyed by pirates in 1536.
