Berlevag is a municipality located in Finnmark county, Norway. The municipality's administrative centre is the village of Berlevag. There are 2 settlements in the Berlevag municipality: the village of Kongsfjord (with around 45 inhabitants) and the village of Berlevag. Almost all residents live in the village of Berlevag. Kjolnes Lighthouse is situated along the shore, east of Berlevag village.
Facing rough ocean conditions, the 4 man-made breakwaters protecting the harbor of Berlevag have several times been destroyed due to bad weather. The current breakwaters feature tetrapods that intertwine and have made for flexible breakwater resisting the Barents Sea. In 1973 the port of Berlevag was completely secured with breakwaters and the Coastal Ferry has been able to dock there since then.
