Vista - beautiful, like so many other sites in Iceland. Do not miss if you are passing on that road. And, if you are careful with your lens or go early in the morning you can grab a picture with no crowds.

The lava shoots and the giant cave are really cool. I had my three daughters with. The are ages 10 through 20 and they all loved it. It was a cool spot.

A good spot to enjoy the beach and see some interesting and unique rock formations. There is also a cafe here with pretty good views, a gift shop and toilets. However beware of the riptide and waves as these are very rough.

We went to the community of VIK (Veek) and walked the black sand beaches and saw the cliffs and the cutback small caves. We also saw an extremely violent Atlantic Ocean. Combined, it was a picture perfect spot. As said by other reviews, there was...More

This was the best example of basalt columns that we found in Iceland. They looked like a pipe organ. Just need to be patient if you don't want a bunch of strangers in your photos of the columns. It was a beautiful day so we...More

The cliffs used to reach out to where the sea stacks are. Over time, the cliffs eroded, but the stacks stood tall, giving us the stacks we call Reynisdrangar. With the nearby cliffs, black sand beach, crashing waves, and bird life nearby, this area makes...More

The beach is different with its black sand, but not too much attractive to my taste. If you are in the area a short stop is enough.
