Kamøya (or Store Kamøya) is an uninhabited island in Hammerfest Municipality in Finnmark county, Norway. The 4.3-square-kilometre (1.7 sq mi) island is north of the large island of Sørøya and just a little south of Lille Kamøya. The island is home to many bird cliff nesting areas.[1]

This island should not be confused with another island of the same name in nearby Nordkapp Municipality, also in Finnmark county.
