The Sting Ray Bay is about 10 miles (16 km) long and narrow.
The road building along the bay was difficult because of the absence
of lowland stretches. All the farms on the bay have been abandoned and
nature has taken over again.
The otherwise rarely spotted bird of
prey, the white tailed eagle, is frequently seen in this area. Other
interesting species of birds, such as the gyrfalcon, the Merlin, the
eider duck, all kinds of waders, plovers, the whimper etc. are also in
abundance. Sometimes people spot various species of whales tumbling
close to shore.
