It is definitely worth a detour if you are coming to Skagaströnd. The raod from Skagaströnd to Kalfshamarsvik is a gravel road, along the 23km gravel road, you will see the beautiful Króksbjarg Cliff too. The Kalfshamarsvik lighthouse built in 1940 has a unique design and looks modern in my opinion. The basalt columns in this area are so diverse and breathtaking as compared to the popular and touristy Reynisfjara Beach in the southern part. Super windy when we were there.

This was one of my favorite places in Iceland. We were the only ones there, it was a nice change from all the other touristy locations. If you're staying nearby I would recommend trying to go around sunset.

This area contains a huge number of basalt columns which are both horizontal and vertical. We have seen basalt columns in the US, Northern Ireland and other locations in Iceland, but this was different. We drove quite a ways on a gravel road to reach this isolated location. There is a large lighthouse perched on the cliffs of basalt columns. It was really amazing. We were there in May, and we were alone. We saw a lot of seabirds and even found a nest built right on the rocks with eggs. On our way back, we ran into an Iceland traffic jam (see picture of sheep). This is well worth the effort to visit. It was a highlight of our trip to Iceland.

Very cool coast line and a weird square light house. Very very windy. You should expect to spend ~30 minutes here. The drive around the Fjord to get here is also very scenic, so you should get nice views on the way. Be aware that Google Maps does not know how exactly do get here, so you will have to get nearby and then look at the satellite photo to find the right path to reach the lighthouse. It is easy. There are no toilets, restaurants or anything near this place, and by near I mean in a 30KM range, so be prepared.

Visited this historic place in middle of September. Raining and cold really give the feeling how people lived. The Basalt Columns are great. But hard to access as you walk across round slippery rocks for good 20.min. On way south stop at Borgin Restaurant for a great meal, in little town of Skagastrond. Info: Same Columns are easier access able at Black Beach. Be warned it's commercialized.
