Arriving the beach was quite easy, as it is well indicated. It is a 15 minutes drive from Vik and then entering through a very small group of houses.
Once in the beach, you can see the beautiful basalt formations, as well as the Three Trolls, and far away on the other side Dyrholaey.
It is a place to get lost in, and walk walk walk (as long as weather allows it)

This place is so different than anywhere else in the world! It's a beautiful beach with the 3 trolls (tall rock structures just off the beach) to the left of it. The square structures on the cliffs are just mind blowing!! With 2 huge caves to stand in as well the place is just a photographers dream! We went around 12pm and the tide was getting a little close maybe look up the charts before going! Really recommend!!

One of the best beaches i've ever been too. Beautiful black sand leading right up to the cliffs revealing the caves .

It's something you do not see often...a beach filled with different colors icebergs, raging from pure white to heavenly blue!
a paradise for photo shooters.

In the winter carefull with the sea... don't go near the breaking water or you might get your feet wet...

This is an incredibly beautiful beach - expansive with great surf against a stark but beautiful shoreline.
