Hvítanes is a charming little village northeast of Hoyvík and Tórshavn on Streymoy’s east coast.
It is located in a little bay with a stone-beach and a boat-harbour where the small boats can be pulled up a ramp
out of reach of the sometimes-destructive sea.
Hvítanes was founded in 1837.
Nowadays people on the Faroe Islands are planning a sub sea-tunnel from Hvítanes to Skálafjørður on Eysturoy.
