Breiðamerkursanður (Diamond Beach)

Probably the most known and the most Instagrammable black beach in Iceland, Diamond beach is the most beautiful black beach in Iceland.

Going to the South-East coast of Iceland, near the famous Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon you will find the most famous black sand beaches in Iceland, Breiðamerkursanður or Diamond beach as it is known by tourists.

Diamond Beach is a black sand beach woven by ocean waves with many beautiful ice blocks which slipped from the lagoon into the ocean.

If there is a sunny day, ice blocks will reflect the sunlight just like there are diamonds on the beach. That is actually where the name of the beach came from. But if it is cloudy outside and the wind is blowing, you will see how the waves break into the large blocks of ice and create spectacular views. Do not adventure close to the water if there are waves, it might be quite dangerous.

You can visit Diamond beach on a Self-drive tour, a Private tour or on a day tour.

Diamond Beach has its charm. It changes almost every day as the ice blocks may melt, broke or be carried away by waves. So you will get a different landscape every time you will visit it. During winter you may not see every time so many ice blocks or big ice blocks as the glacier is frozen in the cold. But during summer you have the chance to see enormous ice blocks on the beach.
