A lovely spot with a bird reserve and small beach. There is a golf course nearby. We drove here by a car as it's about 3 miles from the harbour.

We hired a car and stayed in the centre of Reykjavik, the lighthouse is not far from the centre at all if you have a car, it would even make a nice long-ish walk, on a nice day it would be idle for a picnic!
Beautiful views, very picturesque.
As previously mentioned it is an idle place to attempt to see the northern lights, much less light pollution than the city, and a lovely setting to view them from!

This is a really photogenic location. The beach is just gorgeous, and since it's at the tip of the peninsula where Reykjavik is (and all lighthouses are in such places, haha), it's a great location to see the northern lights, if you can't leave the city. You'll need a car though. Bus connection is awful. A-w-f-u-l!

You can do bird waching and a nice stroll by the beach picking up clams. The golf course next to the lighthouse has a restaurant.

It is just a lighthouse just outside Reykjavik centre, but worth a drive along if you have a car. You can have a wander across to the lighthouse, if the tide is out, and the views are superb.
