* '''Skopun''' - north of the island, the arrival port from Streymoy; a very pleasant little harbour.
* '''Dalur''' - This is the southernmost village on the east coast of Sandoy. It is reached by a corniche road.
As Sandoy is approached from Streymoy, there are views of a tiny island to the west of Sandoy. This island, Trøllhøvdi belongs to Kirkjubøur and is used for stock grazing.
Take the ferry from Gamlarætt on Streymoy to Skopun. In order to get to Gamlarætt you can take a bus from Tórshavn to Gamlarætt ferry port. The trip with the ferry takes around half an hour.
There is an infrequent bus between Sandur and Skopun.
There is a local museum and an art museum in Sandur village. If you travel by car you can go to the small charming villages on the east coast: Húsavík, Skálavík and Dalur, or to the small village Skarvanes south of Sandur.
