“Cliffs, Puffins and black beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The scenery is really fantastic with fantastic colors from the green hills in the back ground, black beaches on both sides, puffins at your feet and the cliffs and ocean in the front. Be very aware not to forget your self when looking at the Puffins. The edges on the cliffs can give in when stepped on

“Amazing views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Spectacular views. We visited Dyrholaey in the morning and the views were unbelievably amazing. The light was perfect and there was just a tiny band of fog over the water, which made our photos look like they were photoshopped. Must see.

“Edge of the earth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Spectacular view and torrent winds. A very raw and powerful coastline. The black beaches are fantastic and the scenery is outstanding. Well worth the trip to the coast. The drive south in the early morning is magical. Easy drive with very little traffic. High winds once you hit the coast but so worth it. The coastline gives you a totally different taste of Iceland. The lookout is fab. Violent waves and an on-coming storm made the day very visually memorable. Loved it. Will return.

“THE place to watch the sun set!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Dyrholaey is a wonderful spot to watch the sun go down after a long day travelling and enjoying the Icelandic scenerey.
Make sure you visit both vista points, including the gravel track leading up a hill. The views are spectacular!
