Dyrhólaey is a small peninsula in the south of Iceland, near the town of Vik í Myrdal. It's home to many birds that live on the island, among which are the famous Puffins! What surprised me most about this place was its long black sand beaches, the volcanic rock formations and the Puffins. When I went there I didn't expect to find them and hadn't seen any on the island. It's an easy place to find, but not so much to get to, because the access road that leads to the cliffs isn't paved. Once we got there we spotted a bird from an elevated view of the area and we took a look at Myrdalsjokull glacier. It's right behind Dyrhólaey and you can see it on days with good visibility.

A day of storm

The pictures I post are indeed color, yes yes! Except that November day turned the tip of Dyrholaey in island lost in the middle of huge waves and winds unbridled ... Fortunately, the rain was not too much of the game. And if some places can be visited only in bright sunshine, it was absolutely enjoyable to stand at the edge of the cliffs near the stormy sea ... For best time, it is possible to reach the large rock needles Reynisdrangar that can be seen more or less easily depending on conditions, near Vik. Or walk on the small beach to the west to join the arch in the cliff Dyrholaey. A magical place in all conditions!

Un jour de tempête

Les photos que je poste sont bel et bien en couleurs, oui oui! Sauf que ce jour de novembre a transformé la pointe du Dyrholaey en ilot perdu au milieu de vagues immenses et des vents déchainés... Heureusement, la pluie n'était pas trop de la partie. Et si certains endroits ne se visitent que sous un grand soleil, il a été absolument jouissif de se tenir au bord des falaises près de la mer déchaînée...

Par meilleur temps, il est possible de rejoindre les grandes aiguilles rocheuses de Reynisdrangar que l'on aperçoit plus ou moins facilement selon les conditions, près de Vik. Ou encore de marcher sur la petite plage vers l'ouest pour rejoindre l'arche sous la falaise du Dyrholaey. Un endroit magique dans toutes les conditions!

I visited this beach twice, first with lousy weather and the second with a sun that is not usually typical of the area. The area is spectacular, the beach is surrounded by cliffs where they make their nests hundreds of gulls, heading west you can see the arch Dyrhólaey and eastward Reynisfjara, a long tongue of black sand.

Playa de piedras

Dos veces visité esta playa, la primera con malísimo tiempo y la segunda con un sol que no suele ser típico de la zona.
La zona es espectacular, la playa esta rodeada de acantilados donde hacen sus nidos cientos de gaviotas, dirección Oeste se puede ver el arco de Dyrholaey y hacia el Este, Reynisfjara, una interminable lengua de arena negra.

Bird's eye view from the lighthouse dyrhlaey

An incredible given to the lighthouse, south of Iceland. Climatologist was terrible, but it muchsimo deserved to have this view in front of dreamy: a beach of kilometers of volcanic black sand.

Vista de pájaro desde el faro de dyrhólaey

Un día increíble hasta llegar al faro, al sur de Islandia. La climatología era terrible, pero mereció muchísimo la pena por tener delante esta vista de ensueño: una playa de kilómetros de arena negra volcánica.
