    A beautiful stop at a black rock beach, right off the Ring Road.  

    Look for a point of interest sign for Hvalnes and pull off the road into the dirt parking lot. You can get some great photos here and then continue walking for around 10 minutes until you reach the ocean.  The beach extends for a while and would make a nice walk or you can just hangout on the beach and enjoy the views.
