6 Places to Enjoy the Sunset in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores
“There’s nothing like a beautiful sunset to end a healthy day.” – Rachel Boston
It doesn’t get much better than island sunsets. They are a natural wonder that grabs the attention of many vacationers here on the Gulf Coast throughout the year. You can definitely spot the changing skies from anywhere in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores but there are several truly unique places to see the sun set on another day in our area.
OSO at Bear Point Marina
There is something magical about sunsets at Bear Point. OSO is a new dining option in Orange Beach with a casual menu and atmosphere overlooking a beautiful marina. You can enjoy the view from both indoor and outdoor seating options. A sunset show and seafood nachos? Yes, please.
Ferris Wheel at The Wharf
Ever watched the sunset from the top of a Ferris wheel? Check it off your list at The Wharf! You will feel surrounded by orange and yellow hues that turn into light pink and blue as the sun disappears on the horizon. While you’re there, enjoy some of the best local restaurants and shopping Orange Beach has to offer.
Hop on over to Gulf Shores by boat or car/truck and enjoy the sunset while eating some of the best gumbo the South has to offer. You can sit outside at the cabana bar or grab a table with your friends and soak in the sunset with live music playing in the background. LuLu’s atmosphere is a great experience with beautiful bay views.
There are few better places to watch a gorgeous Gulf sunset than from a boat! Don’t have one of your own? No worries. There are plenty of options to board a sunset cruise in both Orange Beach and Gulf Shores! Sit back, relax and let others handle the boat and equipment while you take in the amazing sunset.
Tacky Jacks in Orange Beach
Did you know the sun sets over the Gulf during fall, winter and spring but it sets over the bay during summer? This means Tacky Jack’s is a great spot to catch the beautiful local sunsets during your summer vacation to Orange Beach. Finish the day with a bushwacker and seafood while taking in the view. You can arrive by boat or car so this is a wonderful dining option year-round but the sunsets are something to see during summer!
Your Condo Balcony
A wonderful perk of booking a Gulf-front vacation rental like this unit at White Caps in Orange Beach, is the amazing sunset views you’ll catch from the balcony. You can prepare your own dinner, sit outside and relax as the sun sets over the water. We have many Gulf-front and bay-front rental options with available dates so browse and book online today.
