Reynisdrangar

Depending on what travel publication you read, the black sand beach in Vik i Myrdal, Iceland is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. From the black sand and polished rocks that make up the shoreline, the basaltic rock columns, puffins, and off shore rock formations there may not be another place like it on earth. This particular sea stack is part of Reynisdrangar, a series of formations off the beach that legend said was the remains of three trolls who tried to drag a ship to shore but were caught in the rising sunlight and turned to stone.
