Iceland, land of contrasts. And the beautiful and ugly and sad very powerful natural treasures can be found here. Vík í Mýrdalur is one of the most popular destinations in Iceland. Far from the hustle and bustle of larger cities. The village of Vík (or Vík í Mýrdal in full) is the southernmost village in Iceland, located on the main ring road around the island, around 180 km (110 mi) by road southeast of Reykjavík. In 1991, the American journal Islands Magazine counted this beach as one of the ten most beautiful beaches on Earth.
