Black Sand Beach of Jökulsárlón Lagoon, Iceland
View Original Description
The black sand beach on Jökulsárlón Lagoon in Iceland is an incredible sight.
A good time to visit is at sunrises to photograph the icebergs that have washed out to see from the lagoon.
The lagoon can be seen along Route 1 between Höfn and Skaftafell about 5 hours from Reykjavik. At the bridge there's a small snack shop at the parking area with a bathroom. Walk or drive to the other side of the bridge to the black sand beach.
It's a long day trip from Reykjavik, and there's lots to see on the way, so do stay overnight if you can.
