Randaberg is a municipality in the county of Rogaland, Norway, located just to the north of Stavanger.

Some of the first inhabitants of Norway settled here, and its believed that the first people came here around 12.000 years ago. Its believed that Svarthola (aka. Vistehola) was the main shelter for a group of 25 persons, from around 6000 BC. These people were mainly collectors and hunters, but from around 4000 BC they also started with farming. From around 2000 BC, their main activity was farming.

Randaberg is still an active agricultural community, and produce over 80% of Norway's parsley. The first potatoes every year are grown here, and are given to the Royal Family of Norway. However, there are three suburbs where most people live: Sentrum (310 houses), Viste Hageby (315 houses) and Grødem (135 houses).

During the summer the beaches here are very popular, and among the finest in the area around Stavanger. This include Sandestraen and Vistestraen. Hålandsvantnet is also popular for taking a bath and jumping from the rocks.
