Gilsfjordur Bay branches towards east from the large Breidafiord Bay and its mouth has no fixed position, but could be placed between the peninsulas Tjaldanes and Kroksfjardarnes, reaching the island group called Akureyjar.

It is very shallow and during low tides it is dry land except for a narrow trench in its middle. The lowland stripes along the Gilsfiord Bay are very limited and a short and vegetated valley continues from its end.
