Gravvik is a former municipality in the old Nord-Trøndelag county, Norway. The 192-square-kilometre (74 sq mi) municipality existed from 1909 until its dissolution in 1964. The municipality covered the northern coastal areas of the present-day municipality of Nærøysund in Trøndelag county. The administrative centre of the municipality was the village of Gravvik where the Gravvik Church is located.
The municipality of Gravvik was established on 1 January 1909 when the municipality of Leka was divided in two. The northern island area (population: 1,209) became the new (smaller) municipality of Leka and the southern coastal area (population: 881) became the municipality of Gravvik.
During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. On 1 January 1964, the neighboring municipalities of Kolvereid (population: 2,426), Nærøy (population: 2,182), Gravvik (population: 816), and the western two-thirds of Foldereid were merged to form the new, larger municipality of Nærøy.
