Skalmen Lighthouse (Norwegian: Skalmen fyr) is a coastal lighthouse located in Smøla Municipality, Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The lighthouse is located on a small islet about 6.5 kilometres (4.0 mi) northwest of the villages of Råket and Dyrnes on the main island of Smøla.
The lighthouse was established in 1907 and automated in 2002. The 16-metre (52 ft) tall tower is attached to a lighthouse keeper's house. The main light on top of the lighthouse emits one white flash every 30 seconds. The 79,200-candela main light can be seen for up to 14.8 nautical miles (27.4 km; 17.0 mi). There is also a secondary light 3 metres (9.8 ft) below the main light. The secondary light emits a red light: 2 seconds on and then 2 seconds off. The site is only accessible by boat.
