Description:
Sandstrand is a village situated in the middle of the municipality of Skånland in Troms county, Norway. Its population (2001) is 303. The village is located along the Vagsfjorden, just west of the village of Tovik. It's about mid-way between the two main urban areas in Skånland, Evenskjer and Grov.

Economy

The village boomed economically in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In the 1990s, however, most businesses had to close down due to competition from nearby cities and towns. Since being a thriving village, Sandstrand has arguably dwindled somewhat into rural passivity during recent years. Since then, many inhabitants commute to other areas where employment is easier to find.

Sometimes in the summer, Sandstrand hosts the Åsesletta Love Festival. The sports club IL Santor has its base in Sandstrand, though their football grounds is situated in nearby Renså.
