Lillesand is a port town and municipality located in Aust-Agder county, Norway. The town covers a total area of approx 190,25 km2 (73,46 ml2) and has a population of around 9,470 people (2010 census).

  • Lillesand is part of the traditional Sorlandet district. The municipality's administrative center is the city of Lillesand. Lillesand city was established as a municipality on January 1, 1838. On January 1, 1962 the rural municipalities of Hovag and Vestre Moland, the Gitmarkgardene area of Eide and the town of Lillesand were merged to form a brand new, enlarged Lillesand municipality.
  • The Old Norse form of the town's name was just "Sandr" which is translated to "sand beach". The first element "lille" (meaning "little") was added after the establishment of Kristiansand in 1641 to distinguish it from the larger and more important one.

Blindleia is a 12 km Inland waterway between Ulvoysund and Lillesand with plenty of small boat traffic in the summer. Brekkesto village is a tourist area on Justoya island. Lillesand Town- and Maritime Museum is a culture historic museum, situated in the centre of the city. The museum is also named Carl Knudsen-garden.
