Reynisfjara beach is beautiful because of all the elements that compose it: from the black sand to the basalt of its rock formations. The most curious of them are shown in the form of black pinnacles that ascend and hold on over the sea. Legends tell that these rock formations are two horrible and dark purposed creatures called trolls. They came with the idea of cause destruction but luckily they got petrified with the first rays of the new day’s sun.
