Black Sand Beach

The Black Sand Beach, also known as Rejnisfjara in Icelandic, is situated in close proximity to the capital city of Reykjavik on the South Coast of Iceland. With its stunning pitch-black sandy shore, the beach offers a captivating view that contrasts beautifully against the white foam of the waves. The origin of this natural wonder arises from volcanic activity, even though the traditional folklore tale speaks of the trolls being transformed into stone due to their inability to drag a ship to the shore before sunrise. This enchanting location is an absolute must-visit spot that deserves a spot on your bucket list.
