  • I did not really think the plane was much to look at, mildly interesting at best, but as they say its the journey not the destination. But what made it for me was the walk, its about 8 km there and...  more »
  • I was at the DC 3 crash site about 3 years ago. At this time you could drive there freely, it was a kind of hidden gem that time. Not everyone knew how to make it there. We went there at night and...  more »

  • Interesting piece of history to see off the ring road. There is a large parking lot and it’s very easy to find the route down to the beach. The plane crash is not visible from the parking lot and is deceivingly far (about an hour walk each way) but flat the whole way. Very popular spot!
  • Cool experience. Be aware you have to walk for almost 1 hour from the parking to the airplane wreck! And that's one way (so 2 hours in total) and it can be a very windy place because it's an open space. After 10:00 AM a shuttle is operating and can bring you for approx. 14 EUR. It's a shame people used graffiti on the plane wreck. But still impressive to see on the black sand!
