Djúpalónssandur and Dritvik Part 2 | Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Iceland

Djupalonssandur is a stunning black pebbled beach. Along the shore, there are a series of rock formations and columns. On the beach leading to the shore, there are remnants of a British shipwreck. On March 13, 1948, the Epine GY7, a British vessel, wrecked near Dritvik. Of the 19 crew members, 14 perished, and five were rescued. We walked around for a bit and explored the different rusted remains of the ship that are scattered around the beach. It's very cool that the wreckage was never removed and serves as a reminder for those that visit Djupalonssandur and Dritvik.
