To think of a beach where you can't go in the water, even in summer time....well..this is it. People don't go here for the waves, but to admire the spectacular view of a truly black sand paradise. Take amazing pictures and make sure to cover...More
The black beach is worth the trip to see. It is very unusual. The town of Vik which is next to the beach was, however, quite disappointing. Other than the famous church situated above the town there was little else there.
Thought we better make a visit as we were passing it’s just a beach with black sand and a few rocks sticking out of the ocean waves can catch you out so be aware of them
Nice landscape but nothing special 😊
When we went it was a terribly windy day. Made for some awesome, crashing, wild waves. That being said, it was just as interesting to people watch as they ventured too close to the water & had to run when big waves came in. There’s...More
Unusual looking beach with the black sand due to all the volcanoes, with the waves crashing into beach being white it’s a wonderfull site.
Also great coastal views to add to the beach experience.
Worth a walk along.
Unique. Anthracite-colored sand and snow white waves. We have seen a number of dark volcanic sand beaches around the globe but none ofD them brings the colors to such extreme. Oreo-feeling.
Take your time and walk along the water edge.
Time needed: ca 1h. Do...More
This beach is a lovely place to see. We hired a car so decided to stop off here on one of our day trips. The only thing I would say is make sure you bring a packed lunch of some sort as we stopped in...More

Yes, but beach is quite open, so if windy may not be that pleasant. There is a good cafe there to retreat into though. when you say other spots, presumably these are the well known waterfalls not that far away. These you can get wet with spray anyway, so no difference. Can recommend you take a quick look at the Black Sand beach in Vik itself, its close to the main town and you see all three sea stacks which you don't at the main beach well known beach.
