Leynar is located on Streymoys west coast.
The village spreads over the hills above the beach Leyna-sandur.
The small and beautiful beach is a nice recreational area. On a beautiful summer-day when the sun is shining it is possible go bathing in the clean but rather cold water.
The sub-sea tunnel connecting Vįgar and Streymoy surfaces outside Leynar.
In a valley above Leynar is a beautiful lake called Leynavatn. It is popular with anglers.
