3. Nautholsvik, beach

On a sunny day you just have to go to Nautholsvik, the 'real beach' in Reykjavik. It is not big but it is very nice. It is close to the Pearl. It has two hot tubs so if the water in the sea is too cold (it is for me but not for my kids!), you can warm the body in the tubs. There are good walking and cycling paths along the shore so it is a good idea cycling or walking to the shore.
