Ottersøya is a village in Nærøy municipality in Trøndelag county, Norway. The village is located at the southwestern end of the Kvingra peninsula, just across the Nærøysundet from the village of Rørvik.

The Marøysund Bridge and Nærøysund Bridge (which connect Nærøy to Vikna) lie just south of Ottersøya.[3]

The 0.32-square-kilometre (79-acre) village has a population (2018) of 205 and a population density of 641 inhabitants per square kilometre (1,660/sq mi).[1]
