Ancient manor farm and church now abandoned along with other nearby farms. Much geothermal heat, with drill-holes for possible exploitation. The church is still standing and consecrated anew 1964, in the care of the National Museum since then. A special school for young people, a treatment community for the upbringing and education of drug addicts. The land belongs to Hafnarfjörður. To the south, on the coast, are the Krýsuvíkurberg bird cliffs.

The way to Krýsuvík is to take road no. 42 from Hafnarfjörður or road no. 427 from Grindavík.
