  • Wow! The pictures don't do it justice! Very cool experience. Kind of a long drive from Reykjavik, but we'll worth the drive.

  • Very beautiful! Come here in the evening because then there are not a lot of people. I suppose in winter there will be lots of ice here but even in summer the conditions allow ice to form and beach at the beach. It is very easy reachable from the parking right at the side of the street.
  • The south side of the Diamond Beach is idyllic for photo taking with lots of smaller pieces of ice strewn about. The black sand is fun to walk on and this place is less crowded than the northern Diamond Beach.
