Nestled amidst rocks and overlooking the sea, you can find two lighthouses that face each other. One of these lighthouses is the older of the two which isn't accessible to the public anymore. The one reason why you should not miss a visit to this place is that it provides ample opportunities for photography. The sunset reflected on the sea and the rocky landscape should be captured on a photograph here.
Located by a beautiful beach, Garðskagaviti Lighthouse was built in 1897. A new lighthouse of the same name was again built in the year 1944 on the same location, as people argued the former to be too small. The place host thousands of migratory bird species in their nesting season and thus acts as a major tourist attraction. The place is known for its scenic views and bird photography. The island remains closed between the 1st of May till the 1st of July.
