Dangerous waves

Dyrhólaey and Reynisfjara are among the most popular scenic attractions in Iceland and not without reason. A lot of tourists come there every day and last Saturday when we were there was no exception. It was windy and the waves were nothing to play with.

Several fatal accidents have occurred on the shore in recent years and despite warning signs tourists keep risking their lives running after the waves or trying to catch a good photo. There is no denying that it is a mesmerising place and probably the coolest beach in Iceland.
