Grindavík is one of the most important fishing towns of Iceland. Tourism plays an increasing role and commerce and light industry thrive well. Grindavik boasts of the small park Solarve near the swimming pool. It was built in an ancient fashion and is dedicated to the old culture.

Sagas of IcelandAlgerian buccaneers came robbing and plundering in 1627. Just a century (1652) before the Icelanders, Danes and Germans united against the English, who were driven away after a bloody battle.

The Svartsengi Area, just north of Grindavik, is a powerful high temperature area with a power plant serving the southwest corner of the country. Its condence water created the Blue Lagoon accidentally, and was immediately used for bathing with good results for those who suffered from skin diseases.

19.Mars 2021 an eruption started just north west of the hiking trail Sudurlandsvegur (Few km. from Grindavik) to Fagradalsfjall.
You can see film from the third day of the eruption taking by Runar Geirmundsson Eldgos á Reykjanesi.
