This plase, called Vågen, is a nice harbore for small leasure boats, and its also the endstation for the bus from Tau. There is also a fast ferry route from here and directly to Stavanger. In former time (1950-60) this used to be the main center of Jørpeland. The center is now further up the hill, and is quite big. Jørpeland has recently been given status as a city and has about 5500 inhabitants. The main occupation used to be at the steelfactory where almost everybody here worked. Today many people is commuting to Stavanger mostly working with the oil business.
