Great little spot for pictures. Very cool watching the waves crashing on the rocks and seeing the little pools that have been formed. Beautifully clear water in the pools. There is parking and a little path so you can look out at the rough ocean.

We knew it would be a challenge to find. Luckily we came across 2 others searching for the waterfall, we found the waterfall after 15 mins. It’s breathtaking. My favorite waterfall!

Worth to spend 10 minutes to stop by for pictures, beautiful view of the water, despite the wind is very strong

We went during the Winter time just before a storm hit Iceland. The waves here were huge and the coastline looked very dramatic great for photographs. The scenery is stunning. We didn't spend long here as it was very cold and windy but well worth...More

Awesome natural rock pool. It is worth the time to go and see it wether its a storm out on the ocean or its a calm sunny day.

The spray from waves hitting the rocks below us must have swept 30-50 feet high. And the sound of the water crashing into the lava rock equated to standing under a plane taking off. It was humbling. The cold and grey winter skies only made...More
