Most aristocratic of all the Icelandic beaches, is the iconic Rauðisandur beach in Westfjords, Iceland. This beach is not only enormously spacious (and next to the biggest European cliff Látrabjarg), in contrast to most of the Icelandic beaches, this one is yellow – or gold if you wish. In the summer time, you can enjoy nice sunny days here, but do not try the Atlantic unless you have a very thick neoprene. You can have a nice romantic walk here 🙂 not far from the polar circle.
How to find and get to the Rauðisandur Beach:
The Rauðasandur Beach is situated deep in the Westfjords. The accesibility is definitely not ideal and if you are going just with a small 2WD, be careful!
