All reviews black sand beach glacier lagoon beautiful beach ice chunks big chunks across the street low tide two sides favorite places ice sculptures definitely worth a stop small pieces glacial ice amazing site ice blocks unique place worth the trip
We came by after our Zodiac ride at Jokulsarlon and were delighted by the glistening icebergs on the black sand, and floating in the waves. It's so much fun to watch, touch and play with these ancient pieces of nature.
We hit this beach on a great day. The broken icebergs from the Jokulsar Glacier were prolific and the weather was clear. The ice pieces glittered in the sun truly like diamonds against the black sand. Lots of people taking photos. Really cool and beautiful....More
Makes for great pictures and is overall just a stunning Iceland site. We went towards sunset which just added to the beauty. Plenty of parking and across the street is the glacier lagoon so you can easily see both sites in less than hour if...More
This is another mandatory stop if you visit Iceland. This place was truly beyond words and presents a surreal landscape of giant shapes and blocks of ice scattered along a black beach. We loved lifting and playing with the ice on the beach, however with...More
There’s nothing else in the world like the Diamond Beach. You have to see to appreciate how stunning and beautiful this place is. You see a very dark black beach and then on top scattered boulders of transparent ice along the beach. On sunset the...More
This beach is well worth a stop!
Beautiful aqua blue ice bergs that have broken off from the glacier float into the lagoon, get caught up in a stream, and are then swept out into the Greenland sea. Many end up tossed back onto the...More
When we stopped here it was pouring with rain and windy! There were icebergs coming down the river and in the sea and some bits of ice on the beach.
I was hoping for the huge blocks of ice but I think it was the...More
Visited at sunset which is highly recommended ... black lava sand beach with ice blocks on beach and in sea that are washed down from glacier into the sea.
Differs every day so you get a unique experience.
Well worth the visit.
If you want you can try to sleep in Hofn instead of spending both nights in the same place. We did it and it turned out just fine.
In October it won’t be crowded so try a walk on the glacier. You’ ll love it!
No, if you only want to see the Diamond Beach it is not worth it as worst case there are no ice cubes on the beach. But if you consider just on the other side of the bridge (150m), there you have a very nice view onto the... More
No, if you only want to see the Diamond Beach it is not worth it as worst case there are no ice cubes on the beach. But if you consider just on the other side of the bridge (150m), there you have a very nice view onto the jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Also on the way there you will pass the Seljalandsfoss and the Skógafoss (you can't miss them they are just beside the main ring road). So if you get up early, you can fit in all of these and it's really worth to go.
