Grótta Island Lighthouse
On old lighthouse on the western most point of the Reykjavík peninsula. It's a great spot during the summer to see the sun go just below the horizon before rising again. In the winter it's a great spot for catching the Northern Lights.
I got married here, it is magical! just be aware of the tides table and follow it, you dont want to be stuck in the island for 6 hours.
Grótta is something everyone should experience during the bright nights. It is at the westest point in Reykjavík, and if the weather is good and the skies clear, you will be knocked out off your socks, such is the beauty of the scenery.
“Nice bistro at this Hotel/hostel. The pizzas are pretty affordable and very good (specially the duck pizza). Also a cafe during the day and a bar at night. ”
“French/californian style food and good coffee. Stunning cakes and cookies for dessert. Nice people serving and customers are happy go lucky people. ”
“Great coffee shop- opposide the local swimming pool. Great for good tea or a coffee- they also serve Icelandic beer.”
