Reynisfjara is a world-famous black sand beach in the South of Iceland. Walking along Reynisfjara beach, you will see beautiful basalt columns and the striking Hálsanefshellir sea cave. Off the shore you will also see the Reynisdrangar pillars, dramatic rock formations that rise from the sea near the beach. Be careful and do not get too close to the water —huge waves crash ashore without warning and the current is very strong.
