Bleiksoya Island is triangle-shaped and the largest resort of puffins (seabirds with brightly colored beaks) in Norway.

The village of Bleik has a total area of 0,36 km2 (0,14 mi2) and a population of around 500 (population density 1,28 per km2).

Bleik features one of the longest beaches found in Norway. It is often said that this beach is the reason for the name of the village. The beach is white, and "bleik" is the Norwegian word for white/pale. In the village, cruise passengers will find houses, a school, a horse barn, and a tiny convenience store. Puffin safari, camping area, pubs, and tourist information are also available in Bleik.
