Stopped here and had a nice picnic. Pretty place and lots of locals seemed to be enjoying the beach and soaking. Some neat statutes nearby. Our guide told us the sand was brought in from Morocco.

this is a nice place with an imported sand beach. You can walk down and stick your feet in the water, if you want.

Small ankle deep pool, as well as hot tub, beach, and steam room! Well worth the couple bucks you have to pay to get into! Don't forget you are in Iceland and the beach isn't going to be warm!

We thought that this was a warm water beach and it's not. However it was nice to visit. It is a beach and there is a hot tub. Nice for a walk. Free parking and free in the summer form what I can gather.

Make no mistake this is a real hidden gem. After days of being overcharged for everything in Reykjavik (and Iceland in general), this was a super find. Free. Just roll up and you can dip in hot pool built into the sea) or dare a...More

They can accommodate small bags but there no real room for full size luggage. Check the hours of operation as they are limited and the facilities are quite small. Cheers

I think it will be open because it's a free attraction, so there's no possibility to close it. But I think water will be so cold altough the geotermal way
