Lyø, south-west of Faaborg, is the westernmost island in the South Funen Archipelago.
Lyø landscapes are highly varied: level in the west, hilly in the east with two fertile subglacial stream trenches and beautiful vantage points from the centre of the island overlooking Horneland in the north and Als in the south.
The listed buildings and village pond of the lovely, unique village in the centre of the island make it a historical treasure.
The island has several prehistoric monuments, such as the beautiful Klokkestenen, a round barrow from the Neolithic period. Lyø has fine bathing beaches and fishing grounds.
Ferry service departs from Faaborg.
Lyø has its own website where many more details are available.
