The pretty fishing village, overlooks the sheltered inlet of Hamnavoe, protected from the open Atlantic by the arm of Fugla Ness and its lighthouse. However, the haven has many moorings, and advice should be sought before anchoring, or temporary use of a mooring, is requested.
Hamnavoe has a new marina but no visitor berths are currently available. Cruising yachts should berth at the pier, as it is of pile construction fender boards are strongly recommended.
A shop is located near the head of the pier. Petrol and diesel can be obtained from a garage approximately 1 mile from the pier; jerrycans are required.
