Dyrhólaey Promontory Review
About 12 km (7 mi) before Vík, turn right toward the ocean to reach the southernmost point of the main island, the Dyrhólaey Promontory, with its lighthouse. The ocean has worn the black basalt here into an arch 394 feet high; boats can sail through it in calm weather. This headland is also a bird sanctuary, so expect it to be closed during the nesting period in early summer.
