Onundarfjordur Fjord

Onundarfjordur 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.

It's a great walk and the dunes are a protected eider duck nesting area. 

During the first weekend in August, the locals hold a sandcastle competition on the beach, attracting especially the young ones.
