Lille Kamøya (Northern Sami: Uhca Gáhpesuolu[1]) is a small island in Nordkapp Municipality in Finnmark county, Norway. It is located just off the eastern coast of the large island of Magerøya. It lies just to the northwest of the island of Store Kamøya and to the north of the fishing village of Kamøyvær, helping to shelter the latter's harbour from the open sea.[2]
