Holt Beach

Holt Beach

Önundarfjörður is a particularly pretty fjord even by Westfjords standards. This is partly due to Holt beach which is a sweeping golden-sand beach and dune system which curls out into the fjord and can be a bit like Spain for a few hot days in the year. The rest of the time it's a great walk and the dunes are a protected eider duck nesting area.
