Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Diamond Beach with additional information or photos.

They say that diamonds are forever, but the sparkling gems that give this volcanic black sand beach its name could melt away in the right conditions. The “diamonds” of Diamond Beach are chunks of ice from Breiðamerkurjökull, a nearby glacier.

Diamond Beach is located near Jökulsárlón, Iceland’s largest lagoon.
