The main settlement on Magerøya is Honningsvåg. The town has about 2500 inhabitants and it is located along the southern coast of Magerøya. It's quite a small place centered around a bay with a harbour. There is not much to see in Honningsvåg except for a museum, but the waterfront is pleasant especially on sunny days and has some cafes. The main reason to come to Honningsvåg is to buy food and groceries in the supermarkets and to refuel cars in the petrol station. Other settlements on Magerøya include Gjesvær, an old fishing village on a bay along the northern coast, and Skarsvåg, a small fishing village on the northern coast which claims to be the world's northernmost fishing village.
