We rented a cottage just up the road from this beach so we knew it had a great view (rock formations in the sea and the adjacent peninsula of Dyrholavegur). However, when you go down to the beach you not only get that view but the very long beach itself (one area are beautiful rounded pebbles, a Japanese gardeners dream!), the sea cliffs where the puffins and seagulls live, and the incredible basalt columns. We were lucky as the weather was nice and we had a spectacular sunset with interesting cloud formations on the horizon. Note that the puffins are only easily visible in morning and evening at certain times of the year. All five of us loved this beach (took many photos) and wished we had more time in Vik so we could have explored this area more.
