Heimaey, literally Home Island, is an Icelandic island. At a size of 13.4 square kilometres (5.2 sq mi), it is the largest island in the Vestmannaeyjar archipelago, and the largest and most populated island off the Icelandic coast. Heimaey lies approximately 4 nautical miles (7.4 km; 4.6 mi) off the south coast of Iceland. It is the only populated island of the Vestmannaeyjar islands, with a population of approximately 4,500.

In 1973, lava flow from nearby Eldfell destroyed half of the town and threatened to close off its harbour, its main income source. An operation to cool the advancing lava with sea water was successful in preventing the loss of the harbour.

  1. It’s a really nice blog with nice but different information about Elephant rocks. Elephant is my favorite animal and love to visit different islands especially in summer vacation and I think this is the ideal time to visit this island. The writer of this blog shared enough information about this island to visit and I’ll visit there after my niagara falls tours from new york.
