Moldøen (also Lisjemåløyna, Øyna, and Måløy Island) is a small island in the municipality of Vågsøy in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. It is located just east of the town of Måløy in the Ulvesund between the large island of Vågsøy and the village of Degnepoll on the mainland. This island was the original site of the town of Måløy.

During World War II, Moldøen was the site of a German coastal fort. Operation Archery took place on and around the island. Today, the island is connected to Måløy by a land-filled causeway and is the site of a park featuring the remains of the German fort, two memorials of World War II and a disc golf course. The island also has a modern rope and trawl factory, a large freeze warehouse, and an ISPS port. The island is also the base for several pillars that support the Måløy Bridge.[1]
