While I’m a big believer in travelling and visiting all the attractions any one place has to offer, I have to admit that sometimes the sunsets alone are worth the cost of a trip. And though the options for viewing a stunning sunset are many, we have narrowed down our list of favourites that we think are a must-see.
Often considered the most beautiful city in Italy, Venice is even lovelier when the sun goes down.
Venice is slowly sinking into the sea, and one day will sadly become the new lost city of Atlantis, so a trip to view its splendid sunset is due sooner rather than later.
Find a perfect spot to view Venice at sunset, there are many options – from a spot on the Grand Canal itself to the top of the San Giorgo church, and get ready to love the coming of the night.
The Taj Mahal, India
This monument to love, which beauty is overwhelming during the day, is transformed at sunset to an almost unworldly mythical beauty.
The sunset sets the marbled dome alight, bathing it in oranges and pinks, leaving even the most unromantic soul on the verge of a sudden proposal. Sunset is the most magical time to view this landmark, so find a viewing spot and enjoy a vision like no other.

Cape Town, South Africa
South Africa is an amazing holiday destination, from the diverse wildlife to the friendly people – it’s a beautiful country. But one of the highlights is Cape Town, specifically Table Mountain, an icon of this lovely country.
When viewing the sunset in Cape Town there are many options for optimal s viewing – You can take the cable car up Table Mountain itself, or hike the nearby peaks Lions Head or Signal hill. Or take in the entire view including the mountain from opposite the bay in Blouberg. In Cape Town you can spend your entire holiday viewing stunning sunsets from a different but equally amazing location.
The Greek Islands are my absolute favourite holiday destination, I would visit every year if I could, and in my dreams I revisit Santorini and its amazing sunsets weekly.
Though the sunset views are spectacular from any region of the Caldera (the island is made of the remains of a long dormant volcano) the view from the town of Oia is the hot spot for sunset views (and getting the photo for Insta too!). Finding a viewing spot can be a challenge in peak tourist season, but make sure not to miss the slow unfolding beauty, it’s simply an unforgettable experience. Oh, and the olives and wine are good too!
