Imagine a day on the beach – white sand, sunshine, a bunch of palm trees, turquoise blue water… Forget it! Instead try to imagine that it is raining, windy, no palm trees around you and the water is ice cold. And you are begging to stay longer. Is that possible?
Today we’ll take you on a black sand beach in Vík in southern Iceland. Are you ready?
Iceland is famous for its black beaches, and the one in Vík is definitely the most impressive on the whole island. Once it even received National Geographic’s title of the most beautiful beach not only in Iceland, but in the world!
The black beach in Vík is truly magnificent. Try to imagine it: enormous, black like devil’s soul, sandy velvet, glossy from the raindrops, foggy. With dramatic shapes of amazing rocks on the horizon. Dream-like landscape.
That beach like no other will shake your imagination. It’s so magic and mysterious, dark and gloomy, almost creepy. It seems like in a moment something otherworldly is going to happen. You can almost hear a song of the siren, legendary creatures are about to emerge from the ocean’s depth, traces on the sand strangely resemble footprints of the trolls, and the sound you can hear must be the whirr of the dragon’s wings.
Although the weather usually doesn’t spoil you here, we can assure you that you won’t be thinking about leaving, even for a moment. We can tell you a secret – the worse the weather, the more awesome this beach is. And when the fog comes, you simply couldn’t be happier. And what do you think – hasn’t the black beach already turned into your dark object of desire?
