Lickershamn is a small settlement and fishing village situated in Stenkyrka on the Swedish island of Gotland.[2]

The place is most noted for the rauks in the area, including Gotland's largest rauk the Jungfrun ("The Maiden").[3] One of the asteroids in the asteroid belt, 10103 Jungfrun, is named after it.[4]
