It now contains the following villages:
Originally Sunda kommuna was a loose cooperation between the small municipalities, but since 2005 these municipalities agreed to amalgamate. Altogether Sunda kommuna accounts for 1,655 inhabitants, and the population is steadily increasing. The increase is mainly due to the highway that runs right through the municipality connecting the north-eastern Faroes with the western and southern parts of the Faroes. This highway - currently one of the main-arteries of the Faroes - also features a bridge across the sound that divides Eysturoy and Streymoy, thus creating a region centred around the bridge.
The village of Gjógv, the island Kalsoy is in the back ground.
