  Port Map

Heimaey (called literally Home Island), is an Icelandic island which at 13.4 km2 (5.2 ml2) is the largest island in Vestmannaeyjar archipelago, as well as the largest and most populated island off the coast of Iceland. 

Heimaey Island is 4 nautical miles (4.6 miles / 7.4 km) off Iceland's south coast. It is the only populated isle of Vestmannaeyjar islands, with a total population of around 4,500 inhabitants. The airport and Westman Islands Golf Club cover a considerable part of Heimaey Island.

Half the town was destroyed by lava flow out of nearby Eldfell in January 1973. It threatened to close the harbour, Heimaey's main income source, but an operation to cool advancing lava by use of sea water saved the harbour.

Every summer Heimaey Iseland is home to 8 million puffins. Millions of other birds migrate for breeding and feeding there. Heimaey is connected to the rest of Iceland via Vestmannaeyjar Airport and a ferry. Most people live off fishing. During Heimaey's annual festival, natives have the permission to catch a few puffins and share them at the festival, or eat at home.
