Diamond Beach Jokulsarlon
From the Glacier Lagoon, drive or walk across the bridge to the DIAMOND BEACH, another great inspirational site as the work of nature’s ice sculptures are definitely great work of arts.
You will see the most beautiful sights of Iceland's countryside on the way and when you get to this beach and the lagoon, it really is breathtaking.

Stunning views along the way and on the highlands, combination of black dried lava rocks, colorful rhyolite mountains, flowing rivers, lush green meadows decorated with wild flowers, and steamy hot springs.

Wind, huge crashing waves, great rock formations jutting out of the swirling sea, and beautiful views of the black sand beach and towering green mountains--this is an astounding place--just amazingly beautiful.
The lighthouse is stunning on its own but with the added dimension of the cliffs, extensive black sand beaches, ocean views with beautiful lands in the distance this is a breathtaking location.
