Black Sand Beach

Moody as can be, Reynisfjara black sand beach is the most famous shoreline on the South Coast of Iceland. It sits right beside the small fishing village of Vík í Mýrdal, a remote town perched in the shadow of Mýrdalsjökull glacier. What we’re trying to say is, it’s Icelandic as f%$@k. With beautiful black sand, powerful waves, and the nearby Reynisdrangar sea stacks — a visit to Reynisfjara is a truly one of the most special things to do in Iceland.
