Suðurfjörur - Black Beach
Suðurfjörur is about 400-500 meters wide and 12 km long sand spit that projects out between the Atlantic ocean and Hornafjörður. On the ocean side there is a black sand beach where the roaring ocean beats the sand and rocks. On the other side is a mixture of small sand hills with Lyme grass and small ponds with a vivid birdlife.
Suðurfjörur are known for their diverse birdlife. There is also a lot of flotsam and debris that has travelled a long way with the ocean.
This sand beach is a magnificent and magical place and you always see something new, each time you drive out there.
