Most people visit Reynisfjara without making a stop here but we highly recommend this hidden gem. It is just a short drive away from Black Sand Beach and we recommend coming here for the sunset. The drive up to Dyrhólaey is a rather bumpy and steep one but the views definitely are worth it! Dyrhólaey translates to “door hole”, referring to the massive arch that has been carved by the powerful waters over time. You’ll also see the stoic looking Dyrhólaey lighthouse on top of the cliff not far from the arch itself. Dyrhólaey is a nesting area for many species of birds. It is, therefore, a great place to spot puffins in the right season (May – September)! We missed the puffin season during our trip but we were still in awe by the amazing sunset we caught over Dyrhólaey.

The views of the black sand beach from up here are spectacular. The lighthouse, while simple, looks amazing against the mountains. While we were up here, the wind was very strong. Take caution when opening car doors.

The infamous black sand beach. If you're traveling in the winter you also have the added bonus of puffins nesting in the cliffside.

An impressive view, with an even more beautiful ride up, make sure to head over to Dyrholaey around sunset!
