Dyrhólaey is the most southern point of Iceland. It is divided into a lower part and a higher part. At the higher part you find Dyrhólaey lighthouse. When walking around on the cliffs here you can enjoy a fantastic view over the Endless Black Beach, the Dyrhólaey archway and the Reynisdrangar, an impressive rock formation. When looking inland you can see the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull.

This place is also known for its variety of birds, including the famous puffins (only during summer). During the spring/summer months Dyrhólaey has limited access by car because of nesting season, but it differs every season. The higher part can be closed somewhere between May and June for car traffic, but you can still access by foot during daytime.
