S˙gandisey is in Stykkishˇlmur harbour in Breiafj÷rur and is a very beautiful cliff (it is actually an island) on which you can walk and get a magnificient view of the town of Stykkishˇmur and Breiafjarareyjar "The islands of Breiafj÷rur" of which there are about 2.700. S˙gandisey is connected to land by a road by the harbour so you can drive to it and park by the island and walk up stairs which lead you up this beautiful cliff. Other stairs take you further up where you can rest on a bench and have a look at Stykkishˇlmur from high up. At the top of S˙gandisey there is a light-house from where you can get an even better view. I recommend going there while visiting Stykkishˇlmur.
There is a tale of a sea-woman, which Jˇn Sigursson caught while fishing in S˙gandisey island. The hook had fastened itself in the belt of the woman.
From the harbour you can catch the boat "Seatours" which will take you around the islands on a nature and bird-watching tour, including puffins. On that tour, which lasts for 2 hours and 15 minutes you get to taste shellfish straight out of the sea. I just added a tip on the tour.
