Bessaker has a good harbor and it was previously visited regularly by the Hurtigruten, but today the ships call there on special occasions only, such as the annual fisheries festival, the Fiskefestivalen. The Kaura Lighthouse lies about 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) west of the village and the islands of Skjervøya lie about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) to the north.[2]
