Hjörleifshöfði, (221 m) a headland named after Hjörleifur, the foster–brother of Ingólfur Arnarson, the first settler in Ice­land.

According to Landnámabók (“The Book of Settle­ments”) Hjörleifur stayed there for a while and was killed there.

There is a large fulmar colony in the cliffs and there was a farm there until 1937. Formerly on the coast but now several km inland.
