The Murman Coast (Russian: Мурманский берег) is a coastal area in Murmansk Oblast in northwest Russia. It is located on the southern side of the Barents Sea, between the Norway–Russia border and Cape Svyatoy Nos. The major rivers flowing to the sea at the coast are the Tuloma and the Voronya.

Administratively, the Murman Coast is shared between Pechengsky, Kolsky and Lovozersky Districts of Murmansk Oblast and Zaozyorsk, Vidyayevo, Aleksandrovsk, Murmansk, Severomorsk, Ostrovnoy.

The cities of Zaozyorsk, Gadzhiyevo, Polyarny, Snezhnogorsk, Murmansk Oblast, Murmansk, Kola, Severomorsk, Ostrovnoy are all located at the Murman Coast. The coast was populated not later than 13th century by the Pomors and Norwegians.
