Sandnes Guest Harbour

Take a stroll along the waterfront and look at the pleasure boats in the marina or simply sit for lunch or coffee at one of the bars or restaurants and admire the view of Gandsfjord and mountains.
Make a day trip out of it by taking the train from Stavanger (just 11 minutes away) and shop, cycle or walk around Sandnes.

boats and kulturhuset Sandnes is transforming its harbour area. The new guest harbour is right in the centre of town, beside the Kulturhuset (theatre and library) and bars and restaurants.
Extend the trip by a visit into the modern Vagen shopping centre, across from the guest harbour or a little further away, the pedestrianised shopping street of Langgata.
