The northern part of Hestur is high and steep, but then the height decreases further south. The island is beautiful and has a rich birdlife. In the village you can hear birds singing. Up on the mountain, lies the spectacular Fagradal Lake, and not least is to mention the Cliffs of Hestur, which are a first class experience.
The village is working on several projects at the moment. There is a village house and swimming pool providing excellent opportunities for accommodation and activities. Several new projects are under way, particularly one that is aimed at artists.
