The Reykjanes peninsula has five towns, all placed by the shore as each one is a former fishing town and at least two still are. The Reykjanes Peninsula is probably one of the places in Iceland most people visit as it is the home of the international airport and probably the place where most people pick up their rent a car or meet their tour guides. This area is in many ways different from the rest of the country. Tourism has always been a large part of the community since the International airport is located on the Reykjanes peninsula right by Keflavík (Reykjanesbær). Together all of the towns and villages have convenient accommodations, camping sites, gas stations, convenience stores, restaurants or cafés, swimming pools and some form of recreational activity, museums, and adventure tours. The Reykjanes Peninsula also offers spectacular sights and natural wonders and is one of the most interesting parts of Iceland with its lava, hot springs and of course the famous Blue Lagoon.
