The Serengeti, Tanzania
The Serengeti is more vivid and beautiful than what you’ve seen in the Lion King, and if you’re lucky enough, you might even catch some elephants or rhinos silhouetted against the sunset. Visit a hotel near Lake Victoria for the true Serengeti experience.
Canals of Amsterdam
With over 400 bridges arching over its romantic canals, Amsterdam has plenty of “perfect” spots to watch the sunset. Our pick is Zoku Amsterdam – a quirky little hotel right on the canals.
Hanalei Bay, Hawaii
Hanalei Bay is located on the Kaua’i island in Hawaii and consists of two miles of beach surrounded by mountains. While known for the swimming and paddleboarding, the position of the beach between the mountains makes for an amazing view at sunset. Stay steps away from the beach to ensure the best views at twilight.
This small Icelandic town is situated between a mountain range and a lava field, making for some intense background scenery as you watch the sun fall below the horizon. Stay at one of the town’s few hotels, Hotel Framnes, for a view of the water.
Santa Monica Pier, Los Angeles
Want to imagine something indescribably beautiful? Imagine sitting on the beach, watching people play miniature golf while the lights of a ferris wheel reflect off the breaking waves…all under a California sunset. You’ll have to see it to believe it. Make your Santa Monica trip complete with a stay in Palihouse Santa Monica – a one-of-a-kind hotel with a bed and breakfast feel.
