The ocean is cold, and the hot springs can be very hot, so it is important to be careful and assess the surroundings at all times. You enter the ocean at your own risk, and care should be taken at Hvammsvik Hot Springs if you are not in full health.

The deepest area at Hvammsvík Hot Springs is around 1m/3.3ft. However, the area is exposed to the open ocean that varies in depth depending on the tides and can quite unpredictably become quite deep. Therefore utmost caution should be kept in and around the ocean at all times.
