Day 2 Black Sand Beach, Glacier Lagoon & Ice Cave

Reynisfjara Beach

Glacier Lagoon

Next up is Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, the crown jewel of Iceland’s South Coast. Admire the floating icebergs and drink in the stunning surroundings.


The Diamond Beach is a strip of black sand belonging to the greater Breiðamerkursandur glacial plain, located by Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon on the South Coast of Iceland. Here, the icebergs which fill the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon wash up on shore, standing dazzling and defiant in stark contrast to the black sand beach. It is, therefore, a favorite amongst photographers, nature-lovers, and wildlife enthusiasts. Many seals call this beach home, and it is one of the best places in the country to see orcas from the shore.
