Syðradalur is a niðursetubygd founded at the beginning of the 19th century by inhabitants of the village of Blankskáli on the south-west of the island. Syðradalur was previously inhabited in the 17th century, but the reason it was abandoned is unknown. In 1855, a boat from the village was sunk on a large boulder. In 1963, another boat from the village, this time carrying three men, was also sunk.
A tunnel system was built in 1985 linking Syðradalur with the other villages on the island. MF Sam travels the route between Syðradalur and Klaksvík 6–9 times a day, and later a bus service from Syðradalur to Trøllanes, with stops at every village between, 2–4 times daily.
In 2009, house numbers were introduced to the village, together with the three street names Dalsgøta, á Bakkanum and Knúksdalur.
