Nauthólsvík is a small neighbourhood in Reykjavík, the capital city of Iceland, about 900 metres (3,000 ft) from Perlan. It has a beach with an artificial hot spring.[1]

The temperature of the ocean is usually about 12-16 °C during the summer and goes all the way down to about -2 °C in the winter. The area inside the cove is usually a few degrees warmer than the ocean. The temperature of the hot tub is pretty consistent around 38,5 °C with the second hot tub being a lot cooler. The service centre also sells beverages and snacks.[1]

Reykjavík University is located in Nauthólsvík in a new building, opened in 2010.
