The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland's most popular attractions, and it's little wonder as to why. The beautiful milky-blue water is unlike anything else found on earth and starkly contrasts with the surrounding black lava fields and creeping gray moss. The temperature of the Blue Lagoon is a consistent 102 F (39 C) year-round, making it the perfect bathing temperature. The lagoon is on the Reykjanes Peninsula in southwest Iceland, renowned for its barren landscapes and cone-shaped volcanoes.

Situated on the south coast near the small fishing village of Vík í Mýrdal, it has been voted one of the top non-tropical beaches in the world and is well-known for being photogenic throughout the year. In fact, Iceland's black sand beaches are everywhere, but Vik's black sand beach is listed as one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world by American Island Magazine. Probably because there is not only a black sand beach here, but also a lava mountain. On one side of the beach, there are strange stones stacked like stairs, and on the other side is the sea that constantly beats the stormy waves. Iceland has many active volcanoes, and the "sand" of the black beach comes from volcanic lava.
