Reynisdrangar, the black basalt sea stacks near Vik Iceland

The Reynisdrangar is a basalt rock formation in the ocean near Vík í Mýrdal, which can be seen best from the black sand beach during low tide.
Take care of yourself, because this spot can be extremely stormy! And you should watch when the tide is coming because the beach beyond the cliffs disappears completely if there is no low tide and there already died people from getting catched by the cold and strong waves of the ocean.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

Das ist aber doch nicht Dyrhólaey oder? Ich hatte den Spot nämlich gesucht und konnte ihn anhand deiner Angaben leider nicht direkt finden. Magst du das korrigieren? Sonst mache ich das und füge noch ein paar Infos hinzu, denn das ist mit Abstand eine der windstärksten Stellen, die ich jemals erlebt hab ;-) So ein schönes Foto wie du hab ich von dem Spot leider nicht bekommen, da recht viele Menschen in den Steinen rumkleterten um Selfies von sich zu machen...

Oh ja, Du hast Recht. Habe mich vertan. Es ist ein bisschen weiter am schwarzen Strand. Am besten muss Du früh morgens oder spät am Abend dort hin. War Du auf dem Felsen Dyrhólaey auch? Du kannst mit dem Auto bis ganz oben fahren. Lohnt sich.

Ja war ich. Echt eine tolle Aussicht! Nur schade, dass die Puffins schon alle auf dem Meer waren und nur im Sommer dort sind. Kann ich den anderen Spot dann löschen? Dann würde ich die Infos die ich da hinzugefügt habe auch hier abändern.
