It is possible to go by bus from the harbour of Krambatangi to Tvøroyri and all other villages on the island. There are two buss lines: 700 goes to the southern part of the island with Sumba as its end station, 701 goes to the northern part of the island, the end stations are in Sandvík, the northernmost village, and in Fámjin, which is on the west coast, a bit further south of Krambatangi ferry port is a small village which is called Øravík, the road to Fámjin starts there.
The church in Tvøroyri rises high above the village and can be seen from far away. It was constructed in Norway as a building set, moved to Tvøroyri and then built here in 1907. The old church was moved to Sandvík.
