Description & Details
Nauthólsvík is Reykjavík's very own beach. Enjoy the sun and the golden sands, and go for a swim at the artificial lagoon. A mix of cold sea water and hot geothermal water makes for an agreeable temperature of around 15 to 19 degrees in summer. The facility even includes a service centre with a whirlpool. The braver visitors like to leave the lagoon and swim in the sea - despite temperatures going town to -1.9 to 17 degrees.
- The nearby parking lot offers enough space for your car.
- You are hungry? Check out the kiosk, which supplies you with snacks and drinks.
How to get there
The geothermal beach is located at a bay in Reykjavík. Follow Route 49 (Miklabraut) and turn onto Nauthólsvegur by the airport. Follow the road southbound until you reach the beach.
