Lake Rekavatn in the Skaga Parish has an area of 0,8 km², its greatest depth is 3 m and it is almost at sea level. Two rivers, Hafnaa and Hafnalaekur, spill into it, and it is separated from the sea by a low gravel reef.
The main road passes 600-700 m from the shoreline of the lake. The catch consists of sea char and brown trout, which get so much food from the sea, that they are difficult to catch.
The distance from the capital is 298 km by the Whale Bay tunnel and about 30 from Skagastrond.
