It was great to sit in hot bath, run to the sea on the snowed beach, short swim in the sea and run back to the hot bath again :)

Small hot pool and changing rooms next to a geothermal beach with two more hot tubs and warm lagood. Locals swim here all year round. A great spot to watch the sunset and an excellent restaurant next door.

I was hiking in search for birds in the area so I did not take any transport at all. Please check on Reykjavik websites and I am sure you will come up with something. Have a nice trip!
