There are two buss lines in Suðuroy: 700 and 701. Both buss lines pass through Øravík, but the buss does not always stop there. Be aware of the red letter T in the time schedule, which you can find on Strandferðslan's website Time Schedule. Line 700 starts in the south in the village Sumba and ends in Tvøroyri. Line 701 starts in the northernmost village Sandvík and ends in Fámjin. If you come by car, it is easy to find Øravík. Turn left when you leave the ferry port at Krambatangi towards Vágur, Fámjin and Sumba. Øravík will be the first village you come to after leaving Líðin (the houses near Krambatangi).
Øravík is a small village, the best way to get around in Øravík is by walking.
