Reynisfjara is a beautiful example of a beach on the South Shore.

The South Shore refers to the southern coastline of Iceland and it is one of the country’s most popular sightseeing routes.

The South Shore is most often referred to as the South Coast, and it has a wealth of attractions to draw visitors. Waterfalls such as Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss face out towards it, as do glacier tongues unfolding from Mýrdalsjökull and Vatnajökull.

The beaches of the South Shore are beautiful, and renowned for their powerful breaker waves and notorious sneaker waves. While the former are incredibly beautiful from a distance, the latter can be very dangerous.

This is especially the case at Reynisfjara. This beach is stunning, with black volcanic sands and dramatic lava formations in the form of the Reynisdrangar sea stacks. However, visitors must heed the warning signs and stay away well away from the water, due to the fact that sneaker waves have swept many out to sea here before.
