Zigzag road across low bridges that jut out over the sea.
The Atlantic Road zigzags across low bridges that jut out over the sea. The Hustadvika is an infamous stretch of ocean and when in storm it is truly dramatic. In calmer weather you might spot whales and seals.
It is easy to park your car in one of the many lay-bys and walk a few metres to the smooth coastal rocks and some excellent fishing spots. A stone's throw or two to the west the shipping lane crosses the notorious waters of Hustadvika, concealing innumerable wrecks. Many people take a trip out here when the autumn storms start to rage - it is quite a sight when the big waves break beside (and sometimes across) the road.
Around 1900 as many as 120 people lived on these windswept islands. They made their living from fishing and drying fish. Now, the region offers many fishing experiences from deep sea fishing trips to just throwing in your line on the many local piers.
