Skarðsvík is a rather small beach on the northwestern coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula. What makes it interesting in Icelandic terms is its yellow sand (similar to its more famous ‘sister’ – Rauðasandur) and the fact that it is not on the radar of mainstream tourists. Therefore, you can enjoy true beach romance under the midnight sun here. However, swimming in the sea might be better saved for another time and place.

You can find Skarðsvík beach at the very western tip of the Snæfellsnes peninsula, accessible via a gravel road.
