Suðurnes is a region in southwest Iceland. The region has a population of more than 20,000 and is one of the more densely populated parts of the island. The administrative centre is Keflavík, which had 7,000 residents and merged with the nearby town of Njarðvík several years ago to create a population of over 10,000, making it the second largest settlement outside of the greater Reykjavík area. In October 2007 the town had a population of 13,000.

The region is the location of Keflavík International Airport, the major point of entry for Iceland, and also the Blue Lagoon health spa.
