The city is situated in a bay in the Southeastern side of the large Mageroya Island on the ice-free Southwestern part of the Barents Sea. The city is regarded as being the Northernmost city of Norway. Legislation that was effected in 1997, stipulates that all Norwegian cities must have a minimum of 5,000 inhabitants. However, Honningsvag holds a population of about 2,415 people according to data gathered in 2013.
