Birdwatching in Stråholmen
The small scenic island Stråholmen is one of the best locations for birdwatching along the coast of Skagerrak. The island is located 1+ mile (2 km.) north of Jomfruland and is a part of Jomfruland National Park. Stråholmen is less than a mile long (1.5 km.) and barely half a mile (1 km.) at its widest point. There are no roads in the island, so you’ll have to be content with the paths that do exist, which actually works very well and creates a wonderful atmosphere. Nobody lives here all year, but a few small farms are used throughout the summer. To get a feel of how this place is like, watch this report, produced by the local TV station TVTelemark.
