HalsnøyportalenTekstboks: Halsnøy is an island located in the middle of the Sunnhordland basin in West-Norway, utmost in Kvinnherad kommune, in the Hardanger Fjord, east of the Stord island. On the 37 square kilometers that the island covers, 2000 people are living. Plus a lot of deer, since Kvinnherad is the biggest deer kommune in the country.

Because of the beautiful nature, and we like to say, also because of all the beautiful women, the island is often referred to as The Pearl of Sunnhordland. In daily conversation we only say Perlo, which is also the name of a restaurant in Sæbøvik, our local centre.

Basarholmen (Bazaar Islet) is another frequently used name, because of the many bazaars arranged here, with the purpose to collect money to various charity projects.
