Hvítanes is located in a little bay with a stone beach and a harbour where the small boats can be pulled up a ramp out of reach of the sometimes destructive sea.

It was founded in 1837.

The Faroese government is currently planning an undersea tunnel from Hvítanes to Skálafjørður on the island of Eysturoy.
