The Strandarheidi is also called Vatnsleysustrandarheidi. This area comprises of barren lava fields inland from the Vatnsleysa Coast. Originally it offered excellent grazings, vegetated with bushes of birches and willow, but overgrazing and lack of water have changed the landscape drastically. In the area is an interesting sheep shelter called Stadarborg.
