Rauðisandur or Red Sand beach - Westfjords
Rauðisandur or Red Sand beach - Westfjords Rauðisandur or Red Sand beach is a huge expanse of sand in the remote Westfjords region of Iceland. Unlike many of this volcanic island's beaches Rauðisandur has what we might consider normal coloured sand - most beaches here have black sand. This is probably where the name comes from as the sand does have a reddish hue to it in certain lights. However, it is also possible it is a historical reference to one of the area's early settlers, Ármóður the Red.
