Måløy–Skarholmen Lighthouse (Norwegian: Måløy–Skarholmen fyr) is a coastal lighthouse in the municipality of Steigen in Nordland county, Norway. The lighthouse marks the entrance to the upper Vestfjorden, the broad sound between the mainland and the Lofoten Islands. It is located on the tiny islet of Måløyvær, about 25 kilometres (16 mi) straight west of the village of Leinesfjorden. It was first established in 1922 and was automated in 1979. It was listed as a protected site in 1999.
The light burns from year-round except between 2 May and 4 August each year when it is unnecessary due to the midnight sun. The light is white, red, or green depending on direction, occulting twice every 8 seconds. The 34-metre (112 ft) tall round cast iron tower is centered on a 2-story concrete block keeper's house. The tower is painted red with one white horizontal band and the keeper's house is painted white. The house has dwelling units for three keepers and was in use until the lighthouse was automated in 1979.
