The black sand beach in the south of Iceland is quite large, close to 70 km of infinite shorelines, so a fair warning to all tourists intending to walk it.The black sand beach in Vik is called by its local Reynishverfi and since it is renowned due to it’s black sand and basalt sea stack, tour guides are more willing to take you 10 kilometers just before you reach Vík. The steepest road you could strike in Iceland is on a loran station, the highest part of the mountain ruins. The cliffs are the comfort of the ever adorable Puffins. Being in top of the mountain you will clearly see Myrdalsjokull in addition to the whole of Vik, the Dyrholaey and the Reynisdrangar that is astonishing. It would undoubtedly be a spectacular view from up there.
