Reynisfjara Beach is the most beautiful black sand beach in Iceland and one of the most beautiful in the world. Its volcanic-derived sand, powerful Atlantic waves, the nearby Reynisdrangar (basalt) sea stacks and stunning Mt. Reynisfjall (at 340m height, hexagonal basalt columns at its base and a large cave make Reynisfjara a truly unique place to experience. Take care, however, the beach can be extremely dangerous from sneaker waves and huge rockfalls due to coastal erosion. Never turn your back on the ocean and don’t leave children unattended.
Dyrholaey promontory, a natural formed arch in the sea cliff. is up the beach from the Reynisdrangar Sea Stacks and is known for its stunning views.
