  • Interesting piece of history to see off the ring road. There is a large parking lot and it’s very easy to find the route down to the beach. The plane crash is not visible from the parking lot and is deceivingly far (about an hour walk each way) but flat the whole way. Very popular spot!
  • Cool experience. Be aware you have to walk for almost 1 hour from the parking to the airplane wreck! And that's one way (so 2 hours in total) and it can be a very windy place because it's an open space. After 10:00 AM a shuttle is operating and can bring you for approx. 14 EUR. It's a shame people used graffiti on the plane wreck. But still impressive to see on the black sand!
