Diamond Beach, located on the South Eastern Coast is Iceland, is a captivating strip of black sand belonging to the greater Breiðamerkursandur glacial plain, located at the exit of the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Here, icebergs which exit Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon wash up on shore, shimmering like Diamonds in the sun, in defiant stark contrast to the black sand beach.
When you are driving the roads in Iceland, you can't avoid the feeling that you are on a long scenic journey. In your travels you often come across a place in the landscape that is not a natual wonder or popular tourist attraction, yet it just urges you to stop and take in the beauty before you. One such place is the Fossálar Waterfall just off Route 1 in the south.
