Saksun

Saksun, Faroe Islands.

 

Saksun is a village located near the north-west coast of the Faroese island of Streymoy.

The settlement lies in the bottom of what used to be an inlet of the ocean, surrounded by high mountains. The fjord was a good deep natural harbour, until a storm blocked it with sand. This transformed the old harbour into a unaccesible seawater lagoon named Pollurin.
