Before returning to your rental property, be sure to witness the beauty of a Sarasota sunset.

The Best Places to Watch the Sun Sink into the Horizon

Depending on the direction your rental faces, you may be able to see a sunset paint the sky without having to leave. However, exploration is how memories are made during a vacation. Whether you find the perfect spot on a beach or book your place on a sunset cruise, there are various options when deciding where to enjoy a Florida sunset.

  1. A tropical sunset cruise with LeBarge Tropical Cruises is a fun yet relaxing way to take in the sun sinking into the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy the sites, live entertainment, and a tropical cocktail during this two-hour adventure.
  2. Beaches Siesta Beach, Lido Beach, and Longboat Key Beach are great spots near Sarasota to enjoy a late picnic dinner while taking in the sunset. Grab takeout from a local restaurant and a blanket or towel, and you have the perfect relaxing evening.
  3. Enjoy a free show from Mother Nature while enjoying dinner at a rooftop restaurant. Sage SRQ, Daiquiri Deck, and Shore Diner not only have fantastic food but are the perfect vantage point to take in the sunset.
  4.  Parks like Ken Thompson Park and Bird Key Park have phenomenal views of the sunset. Enjoy the sky changing colors as you explore the walking/hiking trails found at these local parks. 
  5. Go for a scenic drive or along the Ringling Bridge Causeway. Connecting Sarasota to St. Armand’s Key, this bridge will give you an unforgettable view of both the sunset and the city.
