"Black Sand Beach (Vik I Myrdal)" Iceland Off The Beaten Path Tip by superbad

Iceland Off The Beaten Path: 174 reviews and 214 photos

  Vik I Myrdal
by superbad

This was along the south coast portion of the ring road somewhere. It's just a little stretch of beach with jet black volcanic sand. There are some rock outcroppings off in the ocean that add to the drama, especially when it's foggy.

Some beach magazine named this as one of the top ten beaches in the world (the only non-tropical beach on the list).

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
