The best known attraction on the island is the Vestmanna Sea Cliffs in the village Vestmanna. Streymoy is connected by roads to two neighbouring islands Vágar island and Eysturoy island by a 5 kilometre (3,1 miles) sub-sea tunnel and a 250 metres (820 feet) bridge, respectively.
Vagar island is the westernmost of the largest islands in the Faroe Islands. The island is like a ‘Faroe Islands in Miniature’ due to the wealth of attractions and natural wonders found here.
