Reynisfjara in Iceland

Reynisfjara black sand beach


Although most of the world's most beautiful beaches are white sandy tropical beaches, a surprise awaits you on this island. Here you will find a black sand beach, which is one of the most beautiful in the world.

In addition to countless natural beauties, the hundreds of  volcanoes, some of which are still active today, give Iceland a unique geological composition. The black sand is made of volcanic ash from these volcanoes. More specifically, when lava meets sea water, the lava cools very quickly and instantly decomposes into debris and sand, enough to generate a new black sand beach in a few hours.

In addition to the smooth pebbles and stones of the black coast, it has huge basalt cliffs and basalt columns, astonishing lava formations, impressive cliffs, basalt caves and a breathtaking view of sublime stone arches.
