A golden beach in the North.

Ever dreamt of sunbathing in the midnight sun, on an island in the North Atlantic?  Nauthólsvík Geothermal Beach is a paradise for people who love splashing around in the ocean or sunbathing in the golden sand.  The beach is equipped with changing facilities and showers, steam baths and hot tubs.  Hot water is pumped into the man-made lagoon and the outcome is a refreshing swimming area averaging between 15°-19°C in summer.

The City of Reykjavík operates both Siglunes Sailing Club and the Geothermal Beach.  The beach was constructed by importing golden sand and building seawalls to protect the lagoon, which is heated with warm excess water.
