To some people, it might seem strange how many swimming pools Icelanders have around the country. Even in tiny places that are so small that we don't define the cluster of houses as a village, there is a swimming pool. Probably because Iceland is an island and also because of the long history of fishing most Icelanders know how to swim. This tiny swimming pool is at Barðaströnd in the southern part of the Wes fjord peninsula. Although small and kind of remote, the swimming pool has a great view to Snæfellsjökull on the Snæfellsnes peninsula.
