Breidavik Bay's golden sand beach is a rare feat in IcelandBreidavik Bay is a beautiful, remote, and less frequented beach and bay area near Isafjordur in western Iceland. 

At a glance, Breidavik Bay (spelled as Breiðavík in Icelandic) looks like a small settlement with a century-old church and a few houses here and there. But what sets this place apart is its extensive stretch of golden sand beach framed between rocky cliffs. Many travelers, both foreigners and locals alike, regarded Breidavik Bay as the most beautiful beach in Iceland.

Breidavik Bay is less than an hour's drive from Latrabjarg and 49 kilometers (30.4 miles) away from Patreksfjordur. You can visit these places when you join a guided six-hour tour in the Westfjords to Latrabjarg.

Breidavik Bay Features

Situated within a meadow enclosed by the vast, crescent-shaped cliffs of Bjarnamupur, sculpted by glaciers, and bordered by the Atlantic Ocean's waters, Breidavik offers an unparalleled natural spectacle. The beach appears endless, only occasionally broken by a mountain stream flowing towards the sea.

The beautiful sandy beach and turquoise waters of Breidavik Bay are a feat that is very rare in Iceland. The golden sands stretch along the shoreline, with cliffs and headlands framing it, offering a picturesque setting for visitors. Additionally, the bay is situated in a remote part of the Westfjords region, adding to its sense of seclusion and tranquility.

The best time to visit Breidavik Bay is during the summer months, from June to August, when the weather is mild and the days are long, allowing you to fully enjoy the beauty of the place.
