Karmsund is a strait dividing the island of Karmøy and the town of Haugesund (in addition to nearby mainland and some minor islands) in western Norway. The Karmsund Bridge linking Karmøy to the mainland was completed in 1955.
Near the Norsk Hydro Factory three powerlines cross Karmsund on 143 metres tall electricity pylons, which are the tallest in Norway.
Karmsund is also the name of a local newspaper, Karmsund Avis.
