Nærøysund Lighthouse (Norwegian: Nærøysund fyr) is a coastal lighthouse in the municipality of Vikna in Nord-Trøndelag, Norway. This lighthouse replaced the Prestøy Lighthouse in Nærøy (across the Nærøysundet strait) that was in operation from 1841 until 1904. This lighthouse was operational from 1904 until 1984, when the old lighthouse was decommissioned and a new automated light tower was built adjacent to the building.
Nærøysund lighthouse stands on the eastern shore of the island of Inner-Vikna, just south of Rørvik, along the Nærøysundet strait. The light tower is 13.9 metres (46 ft) tall. The occulting light has a 6-second cycle, emitting a 26,100-candela light. The light can be seen for about 12.7 nautical miles (23.5 km; 14.6 mi).
