A private black sand beach

Haukadalur, Iceland
17 Kudos
Black Sand Beaches are very common in Iceland as they are signs of past volcanic activity. We have seen several black beaches around the island including the famous ones near Vik. While we were staying at the Laugabol Horse Farm we had our own personal beach at the end of the Fjord. The beach was not very wide but was enough to relax and look for some seals or whales venturing inside the fjords. It was September 1st week and the weather was getting colder and our good time at the beach did not the last long due to cold air and occasional rain.
