The attraction is easy to reach from the village of Vágur. There is a parking lot next to the amazing sights.

Vágseiði used to give the villagers in Vágur important access to the fishing grounds west of Suðuroy island. A statue has been raised here to commemorate the small natural harbor.

When standing at the Vágseiði, you will have the most stunning views. The cliffs are exposed to the harsh waves from the North Atlantic Ocean. Whether you visit on a bright summer evening or a windy winter day, you are guaranteed an amazing nature experience.

There is a less known but just as impressive sight of the coastline when you head south from the parking lot. There is an unpaved road leading uphill to a vantage point made out of concrete.

You will walk for only 1-2 minutes from the parking area in order to reach this alternative location. Just remember to be careful when standing at the edge.
