Breiðavík is one of Iceland's most mesmerising beaches.Credit: Wikimedia, Creative Commons. Photo by: Jóna Þórunn.

Breiðavík is a beach in the Westfjords, near the very popular Látrabjarg birdwatching cliffs. 

Spend some time in this area while on a self drive tour in Iceland.

Unlike many of Iceland’s beaches, the sands here are golden, giving it an ambience that is differs from the rest of the country; in bright weather, it almost looks tropical. By the shore, there is a quaint church, and there are options for accommodation here in summer.

Staying in this area is excellent for birdwatchers who wish to see the millions of birds from dozens of species that nest and feed nearby, including puffins from May to August.
