Dyrhólaey is a small peninsula located on the south coast of Iceland, close to Vík í Mýrdal. It is a former island of volcanic origin which is also known by the Icelandic word eyja meaning island. This place offers great vistas all around: to the north, the big glacier Mýrdalsjökull can be seen; to the east, the black lava columns of the Reynisdrangar are coming out of the sea; to the west the whole coastline of black volcanic sand can be seen, weather permitting, in the direction of Selfoss. In the summertime, many puffins nest on the cliffs of Dyrhólaey.
