Flekkefjord is a municipality in Agder county. It is located in the traditional district of Lister. The administrative centre of the municipality is the town of Flekkefjord. The villages of Sira, Gyland, Rasvåg, Kirkehavn, and Åna-Sira are located in Flekkefjord.

Flekkefjord is the westernmost municipality of the geographical region of Sørlandet. Flekkefjord is approximately midway between the cities of Kristiansand and Stavanger, located along European route E39 and the Sørlandet Line.

The town has a beautiful, sheltered location between the fjords of Grisefjorden and Flekkefjorden, and is characterised by the old, picturesque wooden houses, some of which are listed. The town flourished with the rich herring fishing of 1820 - 30s and Flekkefjord was an important port for the export of timber to the Netherlands. The oldest part of town is called "Hollenderbyen" (Dutch town), and it has many listed wooden houses and a unique history. After a new municipality zoning arrangement in 1965, Flekkefjord also included the former surrounding counties of Nes, Hidra, Bakke and Gyland.

Outside Flekkefjord there is a beautiful archipelago. Its largest island is Hidra where one of the many sights is "Fedrenes Minne", an excellent museum with a collection of artifacts depicting the island´s history. The fjord is the nerve center for the people of Flekkefjordrd. Through times, the fjord has been the life line to the rest of the world with ships coming from and going to all corners of the world. Today the fjord is the main recreation attraction.
