Ayers Rock

Australia has always been a popular choice among worldwide visitors for its amazing scenic beauty, wonderful weather, dazzling nightlife, authentic food, etc. But nothing can be compared with the experience of watching sunset at the Ayers Rock, situated in federal Northern Territory region of the country. Being a part of the largest (348 meters in height) as well as oldest (almost 500 million years) red-colored rock ‘Uluru’, this point offers a heavenly backdrop to the travelers. The entire sky becomes reddish-orange when the clouds move across it during the sunsets.

Accademia Bridge

This bridge is found in Venice, the ‘City of Lovers’. If you plan for a trip to Italy, do not forget to visit this stunning place as it can offer you the most memorable moments of your life with your beloved. The Accademia Bridge is built right over the Grand Canal, one of the most important water-traffic corridors of Venice. So, when you catch the sunset here, the fading beams of light flickering across the century-old cityscape make you feel awesome.

The Matterhorn

When it comes to the most admirable sites in the world to enjoy sunsets, we cannot ignore the grand Alpine crest Matterhorn located in Switzerland. Well, it is a great tourist spot on the way to Disneyland and you can enjoy the best view of the entire region between the mountain hut Monte Rosa and valley glacier Gorner from this point. The golden ray of the setting sun makes the royal Matterhorn look like a bright candle. Catching it is an awesome experience, indeed!


Mallory Square

Have you ever been at the Mallory Square in Florida? If not, then it is time for you to pack your bags and travel to the Key West of the ‘Magic City’. The place has earned a lot of fame for its splendid natural beauty, especially during the sunset. From local people to worldwide tourists, the spectacular view of the setting sun as well as the mysterious sky over the Gulf of Mexico has been pleasing each and everybody since several decades.

Masai Mara

Masai Mara is a great spot in Kenya, which is known for its heavenly beauty. It is basically a vast desert that houses a wide variety of animals. The entire area gets flooded with bright golden light when the sun sets over the barren region. When the lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos, and other animals become active during the night, Masai Mara turns into a perfect visual treat. In short, choosing this as your next holiday destination would certainly be a great decision for you.

Gay Head Lighthouse

The Gay Head Lighthouse, located in the Martha’s Vineyard Island, is one of the most celebrated places in Massachusetts which offers a superb sunset watching experience to the visitors. According to the history, the last glacier of North America fell apart at this place almost ten thousand years ago. As a result of this incident, the entire area became full of deep clay deposits as well as huge boulders. You can watch the last rays of the setting sun falling on these rocks and clay cliffs from the Gay Head Lighthouse. It is certainly a divine scene!


Pre Rup Temple

Cambodia is famous in the world for its magnificent temples. But the Pre Rup Temple situated in the Siem Reap province of the country is unique in its own way. There is a beautiful west-facing pool inside this temple which creates reflected images of the captivating constructions during the sunset. The tarnished red hue of the elementary unites and laterite also makes the entire atmosphere mystical.

Mount Haleakala

Well, the Mount Halealaka volcano has been lying in an inactive state since last few decades in the second most significant isle Mau in the Hawaii Island. But, watching sunset from this place (more or less 10,000 ft, above the sea-level) is an awesome experience. You will simply be amazed by glittering colors on the desolate land.
