Like many other places on Snæfellsnes, Hellissandur was once a centre of fishing and trade; now, it is a centre of tourism. The village boasts a maritime museum, as well as several houses built in the turf-style that Icelanders lived in for centuries.

Hellissandur is located directly beside the Snæfellsjökull National Park and is thus within view of the famous volcano and glacier, Snæfellsjökull itself. It is also within sight of the Hellissandur Longwave Radio Mast, which is one of the tallest structures in Europe.
