Homborsund Lighthouse is a coastal lighthouse located on the island Store Grønningen in the municipality of Grimstad, Aust-Agder, Norway. It was established in 1879, and is listed as a protected cultural site. Homborsund Lighthouse was constructed the same year as Lyngør Lighthouse, and the two stations have similar designs. The station includes a livinghouse for two families, outhouse, boathouse and pier, in addition to the light. The light was automated in 1992, and the station was de-populated. Today it is open to the public for overnight stays and guidance. The surrounding area is a protected bird sanctuary.

  • The most beautiful place along our southern coast. You can use it throughout the Year. Closer to the sea is not possible to be.

  • Simple basic accommodation and tranquility! Basic amenities are available (e.g. electric power supply) but not drinking water. Come a bit prepared.
