The traditional guest house in Austevoll
Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri has the sea and history behind it and is located on one of the island pearls in Austevoll municipality, south of Bergen. The inn was established by royal decree when the Danish King Christian Quart in the 17th century decided that inn houses should be built for every half or full day trip in the shipping lane. Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri was built at the end of the 17th century and has received lodgers for over three hundred years.
Fra gammel tid har fangst og fiske vært livsgrunnlaget for folket i Austevoll. I Bekkjarvik saltet de sild, eksporterte hummer, laget tusenvis av tønner og notoppheng. Her var sjøhus, bakeri og brenneri. Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri har i alle år vært et naturlig midtpunkt i denne frodige travelhet. Bekkjarvik og Gjestgiveriet blomstrer inn i den nye tid. Den gamle tønnefabrikken og butikken er estetisk restaurert. Bygningene er velholdte og menneskene er vennlige. Gjestgiveret tar i mot gjester fra fjern og nær, enten for selskap, rekreasjon, og møter.
