About Nevlunghavn to Oddane Sand

A short paddle trip to one of Vestfolds most famous beaches, Oddane Sand. With beautiful weather this is an easy and relaxing route, but if conditions change it be a bit more challenging.

The adventure is part of Padleled Vestfold and the entry point for the adventure is Nevlunghavn.

Getting there

From Oslo, follow E18 east towards Kristiansand for nearly 132 kilometers until you reach exit toward Fv 303 Larvik. Follow signs towards Fv302 - Helgeroa. Stay on Fv302/Brunlanesveien for nearly 15 kilometers until you reach Nevlunghavn.

Trail description

Launch your kayak in the shallow Havnebukta bay, just a few hundred meters north of Nevlunghavn. Paddle south along the shoreline and take a tour into Nevlunghavn harbor. Continue paddling south until you reach Oddane Sand, the popular and beautiful sandy beach. The area is a bit exposed, but is still quite sheltered from the open ocean by the small islets just off shore. Enjoy a relaxing break at the beach and return back to Nevlunghavn along the same route.

Alternate route
A paddle trip out to the Bramskjær islands in the east is highly recommended on a good weather day. There are nice places to land on Vestre Bramskjær: on a sandy beach in the northeast and in the middle of the bay on the south side. On land, you will find great places to enjoy a break as well as pitch a tent if you would like to stay the night. 


At Nevlunghavn you can find:

  • Public restrooms
  • Parking
  • Fresh water
