Reykjanes (Icelandic pronunciation: ​[ˈreiːcaˌnɛːs]) is a small headland on the southwestern tip of the Reykjanes Peninsula in Iceland, giving the main peninsula its name. The region is about nine kilometres (5+12 miles) from Iceland's international airport.

As the name means "smoking peninsula" connected to volcanic activity, there are also other peninsulas by this name in Iceland, e.g. the peninsula of Reykjanes in Ísafjarðardjúp.
