Best Sunsets Around the World

Cafe del Mar – Ibiza

From Marta at Backpackers.WRO: This picture was taken in February 2014 in the front of the Cafe del Mar bar in San Antoni de Portmany. This is one of the most beautiful sunset we have ever seen. The music and the chill out atmosphere make it even more magical!

Langkawi, Malaysia

From Darja at DeeGees Travel: Langkawi, Malaysia picture taken at the Cenang Beach.

Lake Thun – Switzerland

From Arzo at Arzo Travels: The most beautiful sunset in Switzerland can be seen at Lake Thun in the region of Interlaken. It is close to the famous tourist destination of Interlaken and you can easily get there from Interlaken, Bern, or Lucerne. While there are several spots to enjoy the pretty sunset, I recommend getting a ticket for the sunset cruise on Lake Thun – near Beatenberg you will be able to witness a great and colorful sunset. With the Niesen Mountain in the background (the mountain that is shaped like a pyramid) it is surely a unique place to visit for sunset in Switzerland.

Luang Prabang, Laos

From Matilda at The Travel Sisters:  Sunset at the Mekong River in Luang Prabang, Laos

Maui, Hawaii

From Angela at 6 O’clock Train: Sunset from our first night in Maui, Hawaii.


Giovinazzo, Italy

From Susanne at Wunderlander: The view is taken at the port of Giovinazzo, where fishermen still set out every morning to do their work. Around noon they come back and the super fresh fish is sold directly to the local restaurants and hotels. This spectacular view can be seen almost every evening and is even enjoyable with a bottle of great Italian wine at one of the benches at the promenade.

Hormuz Island, Iran

From Patricia at Ze Wandering Frogs: The small island of Hormuz is in the Strait of the same name, south of Iran. We spent a couple of days enjoying the quiet life of this Persian Gulf island, camping on stunning beaches, and soaking the views of the beautiful sunsets. Red sun indeed!

Montego Bay, Jamaica

From Charmaine at Jamaica Travel Saver: Montego Bay, located on the northern part of the island, is known as the tourist capital of Jamaica. This picture was taken from the Rooftop Bar at the S. Hotel on Jimmy Cliff Boulevard.

Drake Passage, Antarctica

From Halef and Michael at The Round the World Guys: Drake Passage is one of the roughest oceans you can sail. Although it is rough, there are some beauties to be found – and sunset is one of them.

Iceland

From Mal at Raw Mal Roams: Beautiful sunset in Iceland.

Lion’s Head – Cape Town, South Africa

From Stuart at Just Passing Through: Lion’s Head is a popular spot for watching the sunset and rise in Cape Town. With the famous Table Mountain just behind, Lion’s Head sits over looking Table Bay. But the climb up is not simple task. Through a combination of ladders, chains and free climbing, the 90 minute ascent is all worthwhile when you reach the top. Then just sit back and enjoy the view.

Table Mountain – Cape Town, South Africa

From Claudia at My Adventures Across the World: One of the most amazing sunsets in the world is in Cape Town, and you can enjoy it from Table Mountain. Unfortunately, this is often covered in clouds and fog so I recommend spending long enough in the city to make sure you have a chance of experiencing it. You can either hike up Table Mountain (best if you go on a guided hike, or with friends and by all means not alone) or take the cable car. Once up, spend some time walking along the many trails before sitting to enjoy one of the best sunsets you’ll ever see in your life. 

Vieques, Puerto Rico 

From Martha at Quirky Globetrotter: Experience the authentic local side of Puerto Rico by visiting the small island of Vieques. Vieques is a short ferry ride off the mainland and boasts some of the best beaches and sunsets in Puerto Rico. Vieques’ crystal-clear, turquoise waters skirted by their soft sand beaches is the ideal locale to watching a vibrant Caribbean sunset. One of the best beaches in Vieques is Sun Bay beach, located nearby the island’s wildlife preserve where wild horses roam in the island’s dunes. Sun Bay Beach is also very quiet and feels as if you have the entire island to yourself. With sailboats skimming the horizon and only a handful of other beach-goers nearby, it truly feels like a Caribbean oasis. Enjoy the island’s charm as you meander through the quaint boardwalk and watch the sun sink below the horizon. During February the sunsets were an intense hue of pinks, oranges and purples. The sunsets in Vieques are nothing short of exquisite.

And those are just a few of the best sunsets around the world! If you would like to contribute a sunset photo, please email info@thetravelinggals.com.

  1. Wowza! That Malaysian sunset made me swoon. I’ll have to be adding that to my bucket list now so I can make my own photo to add to my collection. I love photographing sunsets. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Aw, I’m so happy you liked my photo 🙂 You’re right – the sunsets we saw on this island were absolutely mond-blowing. Definitely one of the most spectacular sky performances I’ve ever had the chance to experience 🙂
