Haramsøya is an island in Haram Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The island is located between the islands of Lepsøya and Flemsøya, just 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) northwest of the mainland of Haram. The village of Austnes is located on the southeast part of the island, and that is the location of Haram Church. The Ulla lighthouse is located on the north end of the island.

The island is connected to the mainland via a car ferry to the mainland and to Lepsøya. The Ullasund Bridge connects the island to the neighboring island of Flemsøya to the north. The population (2001) of the island is 656.[1]
