Grotta lighthouse stands at the end of the Seltjarnarnes peninsula, west of Reykjavik. You can reach the foot of the lighthouse, which stands on the small island of Grotta, via a path that appears only at low tide. This is an observation spot with an open view of the beautiful sea and sky. The sunset view of the sun setting over the ocean and the night view of the stars and aurora borealis are especially beautiful.
