Flatøy (or Flatøyni as referred to on older maps) is one of two smaller islands that together with the larger island Holsnøy make up the municipality Meland Kommune, in the district of Nordhordland, north of Bergen, in western Norway.

Strategically located between Salhus, Holsnøy and Knarvik, it is connected to these larger communities by the three bridges: Krossnessundbrua (to Holsnøy), Hagelsund Bridge (to Knarvik), and Nordhordland Bridge to Salhus. With Nordhordlansbrua, Flatøy serves as the entry point to Norhordland.

The island is the home to approximately 300 inhabitants, and is served by a local elementary school, Flatøy Skule.
