Iceland is commonly known as the “Land of Fire and Ice” with its glaciers and geysers. But, all these volcanic activities have also resulted in some unique rock formations and attractions around the country. One of those sites is Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach.


The world-famous Reynisfjara shore, near the village Vik in Myrdalur on Iceland’s South Coast, is widely regarded as the most impressive black-sand beach in Iceland.


Legend says that the stacks originated when two trolls dragged a three-masted ship to land unsuccessfully and when daylight broke they became needles of rock.


The area is rich with bird life and visitors can spot puffins, fulmars and guillemots.
