Geothermal Beach

A man made beach at the location of Nauthólsvík in Reykjavik, Iceland. The lagoon was build with seawalls combined with white sand. The sea water in the lagoon is artificially heated with hot water, merged with the cold water from the sea. In this way, it is possible to swim in the lagoon all year round, with an average water temperature of 15 - 19 degrees.

The Geothermal beach offers additional facilities, such as outdoor showers, hot tubs, steam bath, sailing school and a small restaurant. Nauthólsvík welcomes around half a million guests every year. A fake seaside, for a real vacation!

Ine Geevers: #YesNaturally was about co-evolution and partnership. How to become friends with o.a. bacteria, microbes and viruses. Because yes, they can be deadly and vital at the same time.
