Things to know
The Spangereid Canal runs across the Lindesnes Peninsula in Lindesnes municipality through Spangereid from Store Båly to Lenesfjorden. The purpose of the canal is to give small boat traffic an opportunity to pass Lindesnes without going out to sea. With a sailing height of 4.5 m, however, most sailboats are barred from crossing the canal and must still round Lindesnes at sea. It was now one of the tourist attractions in this area.
