Hopsnes

A pit of lava between cove Hraunsvík and Járngarðarstaðarvík.

Another spit of land in the east of Hópsnes is called Þorkötlustaðarnes. There have been many shipwrecks over the centuries but also many rescue achievements from team Þorbjörn that people can be proud of. There can be found ruins of ships from 20th century and important part of history of labour in Grindavík. In Hópnes there is a lighthouse (Hópnesviti). It was built in 1928 and is 3m lengh and 8,7 m tall. The light can be seen 13 nautical miles.
