Djupalonssandur is a beautiful pebbled beach, with a series of rocks of mysterious form emerging from the ocean. About 1 kilometer west of Djúpalónssandur beach is a small bay called Dritvík. The cliffs and rocks leading up to this beach are spectacular. Astounding geological formations, absolutely breathtaking. Great views and a variety of different trails you can walk. You can also see the volcano and glacier Snæfellsnes in this place. Amazing.

This was a stop on a cruise excursion. There was a rather steep but short downhill path to the beach which might be difficult or impossible for those with limitations. It is a beautiful and popular beach, however, and well worth the effort. I wish we had had more time to spend exploring here and time to take a hike. Interesting lava formations.

Visited the area & the beach with the shipwreck. Volcanic beach so was very dark & brooding when we visited in the late afternoon as it was starting to rain, very Game of Thrones.Interesting information regarding the Shipwrecked British steam ship. There a couple of ponds and some stone arches. Worth a visit, particularly in good weather

This is a stop along the drive along the Snaefellsnes peninsula. There are two routes to choose. You can take a longer route down and up a path to the black sand beach. It was a place where fishing boats met and parked in the pass. Wreckage can be found. Another route to the Utsyni Viewpoint is open to wheelchairs. You can have a birds' view of most of the beach here.

the stop along the coast rode here covers all of the bases. the clouds lifted to show off the summit of snaefellsnes mountain and glacier. the rugged coast had sharp lava cliffs. the black pebble beach was fascinating to explore. and the basalt columns jutting into the sea called to very camera around me. take some time and soak in what nature has carved here.

There were two types of seals at this location which were very entertaining. They were swimming, laying on the rocks and goofing around.

The beaches are very quiet, with black sand galore. Very nice to stop, explore and listen to the sounds of nature. If the weather is nice, take a snack and enjoy eating outside.

Dupalonssandur is a black sand beach with lava formations, very wide, with a lot of bones, driftwood, boat parts strewn around. You don't have to walk down to the beach if you want to just view it from the parking area on top.

Beautiful beautiful beautiful! Black pebble beach with scneic vistas and amazing views, you will pass by the remains of a while epine grimsy that crashed here and with a little history lesson. It’s quite a walk like with everything else over uneven surface. Oh your way in, you will pass by this beautiful rock formation too.. loved every bit of it.

You can also see the other active volcano and glacier Snæfellsnes in this
