Reynishverfi is a long pebble beach on the western side of the cliff and is characterized by many rows of basalt columns. These columns give the beach a breath-taking view. About halfway to the coast lies the cave of Hálsanefeshellir.
If you want to walk along the beach, you’d best do this at low tide. The beach is most easily accessible at that point. Anyhow, it is advisable to keep an eye on the tides so you will not be surprised by the rising sea.
On the black beach you will also find the Reynisdrangar: three rock pillars sticking out 66 metres above the sea shore.
