Things to do in Black Sand Beach

4.7/5 (13)

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.

TUI Southern Iceland Tour

If you want to escape the city and see a bit more of Iceland, this trip is ideal. It introduces you to the country's south coast, where thundering waterfalls, snow-topped volcanoes and a stark coastline lie ready and waiting.You'll make a couple of stops at the area's biggest waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, where you'll have enough time to take some photos. Eyjafjallajökull is part of the line-up, too.The volcano that erupted back in 2010 is a picture of serenity these days, sleeping soundly beneath a huge sheet of ice and snow. The real highlight of the day, though, is Vik. This huge beach is covered in black pebbles, and boasts weird and wonderful basalt rock formations.

“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.”
