Strategically located between Salhus, Holsnøy and Knarvik, it is connected to these larger communities by the three bridges: Krossnessundbrua (to Holsnøy), Hagelsund Bridge (to Knarvik), and Nordhordland Bridge to Salhus. With Nordhordlansbrua, Flatøy serves as the entry point to Norhordland.
The island is the home to approximately 500 inhabitants, and was served by a local elementary school, Flatøy Skule until 2010.
