11 Incredible Places to Watch the Sunset

The saying goes that no two sunsets are the same. It is perhaps, the most magical part of the day. Sitting back and watching the day come to an end; watching the last rays of sun illuminating the landscape in a myriad of mystical colours, before it finally succumbs to slip beyond the horizon – ready to announce it’s arrival the following morning in a further explosion of colour and light.

The sunset is beautiful no matter where you happen to see it, however there are some places where the spectacle literally takes your breath away. There’s a reason that so many fantastic pictures are taken as the sun in signing off on the day. Even though photographs don’t capture the emotion of the event or the experience of sharing it with a loved one, they’re still incredible at capturing the beauty that we can one day hope to see in person.

Below are 11 such photo’s of some of the most incredible sunsets seen across the globe. Let us know what your favourite is, or where you have seen your most impressive sunset to date.
