Suðurfjörur - Black Beach

Suðurfjörur is about 400-500 meters wide and 12 km long sand spit that projects out between the Atlantic ocean and Hornafjörður.  On the ocean side there is a black sand beach where the roaring ocean beats the sand and rocks.  On the other side is a mixture of small sand hills with Lyme grass and small ponds with a vivid birdlife.
Suðurfjörur are known for their diverse birdlife. There is also a lot of flotsam and debris that has travelled a long way with the ocean.
This sand beach is a magnificent and magical place and you always see something new, each time you drive out there.
Öræfajökull is an ice-covered volcano in south-east Iceland, at the southern extremity of the Vatnajökull glacier and overlooking the Ring Road between Höfn and Vík. It is the largest active volcano in the country, and on the summit crater's north-western rim is Hvannadalshnúkur, the highest peak in Iceland at 2,110 metres (6,920 ft). Geographically, Öræfajökull is considered part of Vatnajökull, and the area covered by glacier is within the boundary of Vatnajökull National Park.
Öræfajökull has erupted twice in historical times. In 1362, the volcano erupted explosively, with huge amounts of tephra  being ejected. The district of Litla-Hérað was destroyed by floods and  tephra fall. More than 40 years passed before people again settled the  area, which became known as Öræfi. The name literally means an area without harbour, but it took on a meaning of wasteland in Icelandic. An eruption in August 1727-28 was smaller, though floods are known to have caused three fatalities.

The small peninsula, or promontory, Dyrhólaey (0.192 Miles / 120 meters) (formerly known as "Cape Portland" by seamen) is located on the south coast of Iceland, not far from the village Vík. It was formerly an island of volcanic origin, which is also known by the Icelandic word eyja meaning island.
The view from Dyrhólaey is interesting: To the north is to be seen the big glacier Mýrdalsjökull. To the east, the black lava columns of the Reynisdrangar come out of the sea, and to the west the whole coastline in the direction of Selfoss is visible - depending on weather conditions. In front of the peninsula, there is a gigantic black arch of lava standing in the sea, which gave the peninsula its name (meaning: the hill-island with the door-hole).
In the summertime, many puffins nest on the cliff faces of Dyrhólaey.
