Linesøya is an island in the municipality of Åfjord in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. It lies about 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) off the coast of the mainland of Åfjord, and 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) southwest of the island of Stokkøya.[1] The 16.6-square-kilometre (6.4 sq mi) island also lies about 6.5 kilometres (4.0 mi) north of the smaller island of Lauvøya. The highest point on Linesøya is the 230-metre (750 ft) tall mountain Linesfjellet.

After the completion of the Linesøy Bridge between Linesøya and Stokkøya, and with the Stokkøy Bridge from Stokkøya to the mainland, a ferry-free road to the mainland from Linesøya has been established.
