(3.6/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Sit in the sun, swim, sail, or just unwind after a busy day at Nautholsvik Geothermal Beach. This beach on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean houses an artificial lagoon with large sea walls, where cold seawater and hot geothermal water combine.

Dogs, bicycles, and any kind of vehicle traffic are not allowed on the beach. Put Nautholsvik Geothermal Beach at the forefront of your travel plans using our Reykjavik vacation trip planner.
