Sandland (Northern Sami: Sáttomohgáddi) is a village in the municipality of Loppa in Finnmark county, Norway. The village is located on the mainland part of Loppa, along the Sandlandsfjorden, across from the uninhabited island of Silda. The nearby village of Sør-Tverrfjord lies about 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) to the southeast. Sandland Chapel is located in the village.[2]

Sandland is connected to Sør-Tverrfjord and a few other local villages by a road along the shore of the Sandlandsfjorden; however, this road is not connected to anything else. The only connection to the rest of Norway is a ferry from Øksfjord to Bergsfjord to Sør-Tverrfjord.
