Have You Ever Seen A Beach With Black Sand?

The color of the sands of the “Reynisfjara Coast”in the north of Iceland is black.
The black sands of the beach are caused by lava, and there are rocks similar to organ sticks of basaltic character.

These typical rocks were formed as a result of the cave’s sudden encounter with a 1000-meter glacier. The black sands on the beach were also formed as a result of the fragmentation of these volcanic rocks over the years under the influence of water and weather conditions.

But the waves of this coast are very dangerous due to weather conditions and similar atmospheric conditions.
