I came here a few times during my stay in Stykkisholmur and always found walking around the trail to be quite peaceful and relaxing. The island is connected to the town by a causeway and after a short flight of stairs the walk around is...More

Well worth the detour to go to this little gem with amazing ocean views. The little town is adorable and very quiet. Well worth the walk up to the little lighthouse too.

We climbed Sugandisey to get a view of the lighthouse and pictures of the bay. It was a nice day out. The lighthouse is very small, but it's cute. The views of the bay are beautiful. It's not a hard climb - maybe 50 steps....More

We saw Sugandisey Island coming off the Baldur ferry ride in deteriorating weather for a 2 day stay in Stykkisholmur. One first impulse is to follow the crowd eager to explore the peninsula, but a prime viewing spot is right at hand after a short...More
