There is a very beautiful place west of the village Sandvík. There is a sea stack, which is called Ásmundarstakkur. Other place names from the area are for instance: Lambhagin, Rituskor and Glyvrabergsgjógv.
There is a local museum in Sandvík; the house is called "Húsiđ uttan Ánna", which means "The house east of the river". It is very old and built in the old traditional Faroese style. I think that the oldest part of the house is from the 18th century. There are some interesting old things in the house and the house itself is a curiosity, because it shows how the people were living in the 19th century in the Faroes.
