There are so many great settings for a sunset photo, but I would doubt there is any better than on a beach. Yes, there is something about that great big ball of fire in the sky slowly dropping below the horizon almost like it’s sinking into the water. It’s one of our favorite things to see because you can see it pretty much anywhere in the world you have a beach facing west (and to be fair we have also seen some spectacular sunrises for those east facing beaches too!).
And it’s not all about the sunset itself. Whenever you find your way down to a beach for a sunset, you will find couples young and old sitting and relaxing and enjoying the moment with each other. It lets you switch off from all the noise in the world and just be in the moment. As you can tell by the different ages that await a sunset, people never get sick of it. I have no doubt when we are much much older you will still find us down at the beach watching the sun disappear in the distance. We will still be memorized as the sky changes to all different shades of red, pink, yellow and orange.
We have put together some of our favorite sunset photos we have snapped throughout our journey. We have also included some of our favorite we have found from around the web. Enjoy our Best Sunset on a Beach Photo Essay.
