beach, sunset, DestinSunsets are iconic. They are a must-see during your vacation, no matter which beach community or what time of year you visit. But, where is the best place to watch them? We have a few ideas.

Our first suggestion is a pretty obvious one: the beach. Let the kids race ahead, hold tight to your sweetheart’s hand and stroll along as that big orange ball sinks lower and lower. Watch as the sky turns shades of pink, orange and finally navy as your fun-filled day draws to a close and a star-filled night¬†begins.

On another evening, let that beach stroll lead you to a waterfront restaurant. Sip a cool beverage and sample local seafood as the sun sinks below the horizon. Choose a restaurant along the harbor near our Destin condo rentals for a truly stunning view of both the sunset and the charter fleet coming in for the day. Speaking of dinner, a sunset dinner cruise also provides a unique vantage point. A popular choice is the Solaris, which departs from Baytowne Marina near our vacation rentals on Scenic 30A. Evening dolphin cruises are also a popular choice and are available in most destinations along our coast.

Another terrific place to catch a sunset is from the balcony of your condo or beach home rental. What better way to watch than from the comfort of your home away from home, with your favorite beverage in hand and the laughter of your loved ones filling the air. And, while a Gulf of Mexico sunset is breathtaking, the views from the bay are just as stunning. Choose a bayfront vacation rental in Pensacola Beach or condo in Orange Beach to see what we mean.

While terrific Gulf Coast sunsets are available all year long, now is a great time to book a Valentine’s Day getaway with your special someone. Reserve two sunsets and we will give you the third one free! Visit our condo rental specials for complete details and other great deals.
