  • Super developed recreation area on the South coast of long Iceland. Miles long, wide Beach promenades, wide beaches, sports of all kinds, self-service restaurants, along the promenade of free Wi-FI, huge parking (indicate the coming high season crowds) available. The Jones Park is worth a visit with parking available and in any case. Don't underestimate the distances of the directions!
