What people are saying:

📚U.S. "Island Magazine" listed the Black Beach of Vic Town as one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world. After being carved by nature, the basalt has become black sand. 🇮🇸 So when you come to Iceland, you must come to this black beach to get a closer look. There are two ways to play in Black Beach. One is to climb to the Diholari Strait and overlook the black sand beach from a height, which is particularly majestic. Another is to play directly on the black sand beach. You must pay attention to both methods. The wind here is very strong, and if you don't pay attention, it will make you feel unstable. 🧍‍♂️Standing on the natural piano keyboard on the basalt mountain wall, I feel that this place can explain the end of the world and people’s imagination of outer space planets. 🌊 The scorching molten slurry that once could destroy everything, becomes delicate and soft black sand under the icy cold sea water, in the face of time-the vicissitudes of life. 🔱The Raynes Rock standing in the sea is said to be petrified by giants. It is called the two monsters on the sea horizon. It is also one of the filming locations of "Game of Thrones". The sky is getting darker, and the black beaches and natural rocks add a bit of ethereal and mystery to this sea area.

    Interesting experience

    We have visited the Vik black beach when stopping over in Vik. It is just like a ‘normal’ beach, but then the ‘sand’ is pitch-black. Not a place to spend time, but interesting to see

    Great beach with lots of interesting cliff faces.

    A lovely beach which is unlike any other, a bit difficult to park but apart from that it’s definitely worth the visit, however I’d recommend going to Vikurfjara instead as it’s much better and is the ...

    cool place

    the black send is just amazing. But it is best with glaciers on at the diamond beach. But still it would be a good stop if it is on your way.

    Must see!

    We were supposed to be snowmobiling, but it was cancelled due to the weather, so had no choice but to join the rest of our tour group to this beach. Never have I been so grateful for a cancellation....
