Vágur is one of the largest towns in Suðuroy. It is situated on the east coast in the southern part of the island, between the villages Porkeri and Lopra. Vágur lies around the fjord of Vágur, Vágsfjørður. There are beautiful viewpoints around the village. West of the village there is Vágseiði, south of the town is Eggjarnar with vertical cliffs, and you stand on top of the mountain Skúvanes looking strait down in the North Atlantic Ocean. North of Vágur there is a place called Botni, the first hydro electric powerplant was built there in 1921, and it is still in function. The population of Vágur is around 1370.
