Breidavik Beach (Breiðavík Bay)

The pretty little settlement of Breiðavík is located just around the corner from Iceland’s (and Europe’s) most westerly point, Látrabjarg. Besides the weatherboard church and a clutch of houses there is one thing that draws people to Breidavik - the enormous stretch of white sand beach.

Breidavik Beach is said by many to be the finest beach in Iceland and it’s not difficult to see why. Breiðavík set on a meadow encompassed by the huge crescent of glacier carved cliffs of Bjarnamupur and the aquamarine waters of the Atlantic ocean. The beach here seems to go on for ever though it is occasionally interrupted by a mountain stream making its way down to the sea.

If you see another sole whilst you stroll along the length of this beach then the chances are it is the middle of summer. Many of the people who come this far off the beaten track are merely stopping off on their way to the Látrabjarg bird cliffs which are well known for the millions of puffins, gannets, guillemots and razorbills.
