Sumbiarholmur and Flesjarnar
There is an islet called Sumbiarholmur just outside the village Sumba (7,0 sqhm)
. Around 9 sheep live there in summertime. Further south there are a few rocks called Flesjarnar. One of these rocks is called Sumbiarsteinurin or Munkurin (The Monk). The name Munkurin is because of the fact, that this rock is lying by itself, while the other rocks lye closely together. In the old days the bird Sślan (Northern Gannet) nested in Munkurin as well as in Mykines holmur. But since the rock erupted in 1884, sślan only nests in Mykinesholmur in the Faroes.
The sound between Sušuroy and Munkurin is notorious for its strong current, the sound is called Rųstin. The poet Poul F. Joensen, who was born in Sumba in 1898 mentions Rųstin in at least one of his poems "...og Rųstin rķsin rann". Munkurin is situated on this position: 61° 10' 30".85 N, 6° 40' 23".77 V and is the southernmost point of the Faroe Islands. Akraberg
Akraberg is around 2 km south of Sumba. Akraberg is a beautiful place with rich birdlife. There is a lighthouse there and two red houses, but nobody lives there anymore. There was a colony of Friesian people from 1040 to the Black Death killed them in around 1350.
Sumba is a small village in the southern end of Sušuroy in the Faroe Islands. Sumba is situated on the south western coast of Sušuroy. The village is not protected be a fjord; the sea is mostly quite rough outside Sumba. But apart from the seaside there are high mountains around Sumba, the back of Beinisvųrš rises dramatically 469 m from the sea. From Sumba it looks green, but if you see it from the sea or from Hesturin, which is between Sumba and Lopra, than you can see it as a vertical cliff; it is the second highest vertical cliff in the Faroe Islands, only Enniberg in Višoy is higher. The people in Sumba are known for their skills in the traditional Faroese chain dance and the long folk songs (called "kvęši" in Faroese).
