The beach features a hot pot, steam bath, snack bar serving hot drinks and chocolate, and kids' playground. Amenities include changing rooms, toilets, showers, and towels and swimsuits you can rent. 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.
