This is a must see. The rock formations are incredible, the black sand beaches are gorgeous, and puffins fly overhead. Come early if you want to avoid crowds.

Very busy spot but we were able to find parking then headed out to the beach. Beautiful coastline. Look up on top of the basalt column structure and you might see puffins nesting!

We came in the late afternoon and again in the late evening (after 9pm) and it was still crowded. The amazing basalt cliffs are so worth seeing that it’s worth the struggle for space in the car park. You’ll need at least 30 minutes.

A shame that it was pouring with rain the day we visited. The black beach is a must visit place if you are in Iceland. A pleasant inconspicuous cafe by the beach.

When on the south coast of Iceland, this place is a must-stop in my opinion. The coastline here is dramatically spectacular and the black sand beach is beautiful -- stretching westward to the cliffs of Dyrholaey (also a must-see stop nearby). The rock outcroppings at...More

This place offers beautiful scenery of many amazing rock features plus the black sand beach. A definite must see if you are down near Vik. Nothing like it in the entire world!

Really enjoyed our visit here. Amazing views of the ocean and black sand beach. We drove into Vik for lunch, only a few miles away, and it’s also a neat little town.

It is odd to see these structures out into the Atlantic Ocean, not too far off shore. Our weather was not the best but the conditions added atmosphere to the visit.
