The Best Places To Watch The Sunset
8. Ipanema Beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Everything is beautiful at this beach let alone the sunset. After a long day of doing absolutely nothing in the hot sun, a person can come here to relax, sit at a beachside cafe & watch the day turn into nite. Now if only you could figure out how to get back to your hotel in the dark without being mugged : (
7. The Maldives, Indian Ocean
Now I realize many of you don't realize where the Maldives are, or what they are. Well I'll tell you, The Maldives is an island nation in the middle of the Indian Ocean famous for its untouched beaches, & serene beauty. While the possibility of ever coming here may be a little beyond most people both in imagination and in budget. The sunsets are amazing.
6. Cape Town, South Africa
There isn't an experience like watching the sun set on Christmas Eve as you sit on the strand looking at Table Mount in the distance, & reflect upon the long day you spent on the beautiful beach.
5. Grand Canyon, Arizona
Well it's a big canyon, in the middle of a huge desert, which is completely isolated hence the word deserted being a derivative of desert. And when the sun sets here, well the colours are truly amazing.
4. Great Pyramids, Egypt
This is beautiful just to think about. A large red ball of fire dropping below the desert horizon but just before it does it stops just long enough to be even with the pyramids & give you that image you've been waiting your whole life for.
3. Serengeti, Tanzania
Pure beauty is the sun setting on the African plains as you watch an antelope herd from the back of a Land Rover. Not many people get to experience that, & if you have, you're lucky.
2. Taj Mahal, India
I don't know if anyone reading this has ever seen a picture of the sun setting just beyond the Taj Mahal, but if they have then they surely understand why it takes such a high spot. There aren't many places in the world to see such a sight as a sunset like this.
1. Santorini, Greece
Santorini is the world famous, & most beautiful Greek Island. The island consisting of a volcanic rim overlooking the sea filled caldera. Universally considered the world's best place to watch the sunset, the northern village of Oia offers spectacular views of the ocean, the island of Ios in the distance, & the sun dipping into the Aegean. And take it from me, it is the best place in the world to watch the sunset.
