How to Make the Most of Your Sunset Experience
Watching the sun sink into the horizon is the perfect way to unwind after a fun-filled day. However, that doesn’t mean it has to be a dull outing, and with a few extra steps, your evening outing can be made that much more memorable.
1. Pick Your Viewing Location
There is no shortage of incredible spots throughout Key West that offer breathtaking sunset views. Some of the best ones include:
- Mallory Square’s nightly Sunset Celebration
- One of the sunset cruises offered by Danger Charters or Fury Cat
- Beaches like Smathers Beach and Rest Beach
- Fishing piers, including Higgs Beach Pier and Edward B. Knight Pier
- Nearby parks such as Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and Dry Tortugas National Park
With so many spots to choose from, you can watch Mother Nature’s show from a new location every night.
2. Grab Dinner to Go
Enjoy dinner and a show by picking up dinner from one of the world-class restaurants in Key West that offer takeout. There are plenty of spots near our adults-only hotel that offer takeout. Enjoy Mediterranean cuisine from Kennedy Cafe, or grab a po-boy from Caroline’s Cafe. The variety of restaurants means there is something that fits your craving near your sunset viewing spot.
3. Make Sure Your Camera Is Charged
Remember the hues of the changing sky forever by capturing the perfect picture. Whether you use your phone or a camera, there are some tips and tricks to remember. If using a camera, try using different focal lengths or different exposures. You also want to think about how you frame your shot.
