The area west of Vágar is called Vágs-eiði. The cliffs and rocky reefs here are exposed to powerful winds and waves.
There, statues have been raised to commemorate the historic importance of the small natural harbour, which until the early 20th century gave villagers important access to western waters.
Vágseiði offers visitors excellent views and widely contrasting atmospheres – on stormy, winter days and serene, summer nights.
