Things to do in Black Sand Beach

4.7/5 (30)

Thanks to its volcanic landscape, Iceland is home to many black sand beaches. The most famous is Reynisfjara, found on the South Coast of Iceland, just beside the small fishing village of Vik. The distinctive black sand forms from eroded volcanic rock creating this strikingly unique landscape where the black sand contrasts the white powerful waves of the Atlantic.

With full day trips to multi-stop tours available departing from Reykjavík there is a lot more than just the black sand beach to see. The area also offers some impressive sights including the odd rock face of columnar basalt, looming cliffs, hidden caves and the magnificent Reynisdrangar sea stacks that rise from the ocean at the foot of Reynisfjall mountain.

“Absolutely fantastic day, Fabulous tour guide I forgot his name but very knowledgeable and talkative, he was happy to wait until everyone was ready to leave each place there was no rush. He gave clear instructions on each stop and even took us to the glacier. Highly recommend and would book again.”

“Reference numberATV ride in South Iceland from ReykjavíkThis is a beautiful experience&knowledgeable guide. The DC-9 and Glacier experience were great. Our guide was prompt and friendly in dealing with needs. More time should have been on the beach in my opinion.”
