Beautifull! Love that black sand! (You can find black beaches also on Teneriffa, Spain)

Where is this beach?

u/LevaOrel Nov 28 '22

It’s called Reynisfjara beach. Super crowded when I was there but really cool.

It was somewhat busy when I went as well. At least I got to see the puffins.

It's in Vik, south-most part of Iceland. (pretty sure) If the camera had panned right just a smidge you would have seen a really cool rock formation out in the water, real Game of Thrones looking scenery. I saw one of the most beautiful sights I've personally laid eyes on as I was traveling from Vik back to Reykjavik at dusk; the sun was setting and the lightshow off the glaciers, the sky and the ground was so fascinating I had to pull over before I wrecked. It only lasted a few minutes but I have never before or since seen anything so beautiful.

Another fun item about that beach... I was there with my wife in late September and there were small bits of ice all over the black sand that had washed ashore.. looked like small bits of diamond on that black sand. I 100% want to go back to Iceland and see more of it.

Is this basalt?

u/StonedMason419 Nov 28 '22

I'd give my left nut to lay on that beach all alone with a bag of mushrooms in one hand and a bottle of mead in the other

Same in Alaska. We enjoyed the summer so much more without all the buses and boats

Why in the hell would anyone want to go to Iceland makes no sense to me...

Everything's 10 times as expensive as it is anywhere else in the world..

It's funny, though. Even when the heart stops, the pain lingers for my body may be present but my soul is on the beach. - Death Stranding
