We were there on an a partly winter morning when the sun was coming up and it was surreal. The way the rocks came up from the water in the was a beautiful sight with the sun vbarely hitting them. Definitely want to make a stop while in Vik.

Pros:
- basalt columns are really cool
- cool cave only accessible during low tide
- black sand beach!
- 5 minute walk from car park.
- can see Dyrholaey in the distance.

Cons:
- parking is partly in black sand - our car got stuck on it and we had to be towed out by friendly tourists.

Tips:
- find out when low tide is so you can access the cave.
- columns on the side are very climb-able.

We had a beautiful drive through farmland to get to Reynisdrangar. This site offers some really nice views of Dyrholaey and boasts some really cool caves as well.

I really liked the legend of the three pillars of rock protruding from the ocean. Apparently two giants were towing a three sailed ship to shore, but before they could make it, the sun came out and turned them to stone. Definitely worth a visit.

For a dramatic hollywood like mysterious beach, visit this one. The unique formations of the basalt columns which though slippery can be climbed on, the mystic cave, which is completely blocked during high tide remind me of those Famous five, Secret seven stories I read as a kid. Cool walking areas around this beach with geology alive at your every turn.

After going to Dryholaey first, we went out and around to get the view from this vantage point. They both are very scenic but this one has the sea stacks which are very unique and interesting. If you have the time, I would definitely visit both.
