Hvitserkur (15 m) protrudes out of the sea in the western part of the Huna Bay near the coast a short distance from the farm Suluvellir.  The sea erosion has carved three holes through its foundations and sculptures it in the shape of a petrified monster.

A few bird species, especially shag, occupy the precipice as can be seen by the guano. The foundations have been fortified with concrete.  Steep steps take you down to the gravel and pebble beach opposite to the cliff.  Please be careful on your way up and down.
