Vallø was a municipality (Danish, kommune) in the former Roskilde County on the east coast of the island of Zealand (Sjælland) in east Denmark. The municipality covered an area of 84 km², and had a total population of 10,337 (2005). Its last mayor was Poul Arne Nielsen, a member of the Venstre (Liberal Party) political party.

The main town and the site of its municipal council was the town of Hårlev.

Neighboring municipalities were Køge to the northwest, Rønnede and Fakse to the southwest, and Stevns to the southeast.

Because the municipality formed a headland between two large bays, it is surrounded by water on three sides. To the northeast was Køge Bay (Køge Bugt).

On January 1, 2007 Vallø municipality was, as the result of Kommunalreformen ("The Municipality Reform" of 2007), merged with the existing municipality of Stevns to form a new Stevns municipality. This created a municipality with an area of 247 km² and a total population of 21,776 (2005). The new municipality belongs to Region Sjælland ("Zealand Region").
