The village of Vik i Myrdal is the southernmost village in Iceland, located on the main ring road around the island. A remarkable nearby feature is the beautiful black beach with the Reynisdrangar, black basalt columns sculpted by the sea. A folk tale says that they are former trolls which were caught outside at dawn. The sea around them is rather wild and stormy, so travelers will not be surprised to discover a monument to the memory of drowned seamen on the beach. The nearby Reynisfjall mountain is very famous in ornithology circles. Many species of birds are to be seen there in summer, especially puffins. These may also be observed on the Dyrholaey peninsula.
