2. Reynisfjara Beach

Iceland's landscape can be so extreme that visitors frequently feel like they are traveling to an alien world. For example, much of Iceland's southern coast has experienced glacial flooding, resulting in vast swathes of exotic black sand beaches. One of the most famous of these beaches is Reynisfjara. Visitors should be wary of powerful waves, but the view of sparkling black sand and stark geologic features such as the basalt pillars of Reynisdrangar just beyond the beach make this an amazing photo opportunity.
