Today, Bud is a paradise for tourists. Both families with children and sport-fishermen. Especially popular is the form of renting a "rorbu" that comes with a boat. You can read more about ”Rorbua” here.
A third option is renting an appartment with the same high quality as a rorbu. The difference is that this is locatet on top of a garage in stead of un top of a sea-house. This has the ocean as its nearest neighbour as well, but does not come with a boat. Read more about ”Loftstua.”
