Skjólfjörur is an interesting beach made of pebbles of all colours and sizes. However, the main attraction of this beach is definitely the elephant-like rock formation, Ljósastapi.
You can admire the beach from a cliff about 30 meters high, or you can walk down.
Approximately at Ljósastapi there is a path down to the beach. Be careful, besides pebbles, rocks of Ljósastapi, bird skeletons there is also a lot of driftwood.
An interesting feature is the waterfall, whose water disappears somewhere underground just below the waterfall.
Skjólfjörur Beach is 20 kilometres east of Vopnafjörður. There is a small parking lot by the beach for about 3 cars. From here it is literally a few meters to the beach.
