Strengereid is a village in the municipality of Arendal in Aust-Agder county, Norway. It is located 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) northeast of Eydehavn and just west of the island of Flosta.

Originally, Strengereid was part of the municipality of Tvedestrand, but on 1 January 1962, the Strengereid area was merged with the neighboring municipalities of Flosta (west), Stokken (south), and Austre Moland (north-west) to form the new municipality of Moland. At that time Strengereid had 375 inhabitants. Then, on 1 January 1992, Moland was incorporated into Arendal.[1]
