Diamond beach is one of the most stunning travel destinations in Iceland. Due to volcanic eruptions, the sand on the beach has turned into black color. Huge chunks of ice break up into thousands of incredible blocks from the Breioamerkursandur glacier, wash up on the jet-black sand of the Breioamerkursandur beach.
There is a very cold climate in Iceland. Therefore, ice blocks do not melt easily and remain the same for a longer period. The reason to call this beach the “diamond beach” is because these ice cubes on the vibrant jet-black sand beach look exactly like diamonds.
