The southern shore of the Hólmanes Peninsula, below the peak Hólmatindur, is a nature reserve. Hiking in the area offers superb maritime views (look out for pods of dolphins). The Hólmaborgir hike, south of the main road, is a popular loop that takes but an hour or two.

There's a small car park, viewpoint and information board here, on the main road a few kilometres before you reach Eskifjörður.
