The Best Places To Watch The Sunset
10. Sentosa Island, Singapore
Sentosa is a small island just off the coast of Singapore easily accessible by
both bridges, as well as the more unique experience of being able to take a
cable car to the island from an upper floor in a neighbouring Singaporean
high-rise building. The sunsets here take on a unique beauty as there are dozens
of oil refineries in the distance on the horizon, & as the sun dips the smoke
from the refineries make for a dazzling display of colour.
9. Santa Monica Pier, Los Angeles
There's nothing quite like watching the sunset from the Santa Monica Pier.
Imagine the setting,,, waves crashing along the shore, a seal lies on the beach
after a long day, a roller coaster, & ferris wheel light up the pier, people are
playing miniature golf, skee ball machines make loud noises, & some Asian guy is
singing karaoke,,,, all of that coupled with a sun setting into the beautiful
Pacific, well you can't find all of that anywhere else.
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 : (
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.
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.
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.
