This is an eighteen km long and a 2 km wide bay, accessible by road during summer. A friendly hamlet, Brekka, on the bay with a hotel and a restaurant welcomes the visitors with its magnificent mountainous surroundings. The small peninsula Asknes was the location of the world’s largest whaling station just after the turn of the 19th century. At the mouth of the bay is a weather observation station (1938) and a lighthouse (1895) accessible by road.
