Chasing Sunsets in Belize: Where to Enjoy A Beautiful Sunset

by Louise Roe

There’s a reason sunsets are constant muses for writers and poets – they are beautiful, mesmerizing, and inspiring. Besides, there is something magical and relaxing about watching a sunset. The sky transitions from brilliantly red and orange tones into darkness. Belize’s diverse landscapes allow for watching gorgeous sunsets, with stunning vistas, regardless of what corner of the country your Belize adventures take you.

Belize is home to the second largest living Barrier Reef in the world! On Ambegris Caye, you can enjoy a relaxing sailing day on the Caribbean Sea, with turquoise water and tropical weather. At the end of your day, watch the sun set as you sail back to town.

In the South, enjoy a private sunset cruise with Hamanasi Resort as you cruise along the bay of Hopkins. The glimmering of the sea as the sun sets makes for a magical end to the day.

When looking to book a place to stay in Belize, you’re guaranteed to find a room with a view. Sea views, jungle views, and waterfall views are just a few magnificent backdrops for a stunning sunset. In Mountain Pine Ridge, Gaia Riverlodge offers guests the chance to enjoy  the sunset overlooking the on-site Five Sisters Waterfall. However, watching the sunset over the waterfalls from your private terrace or from the outdoor deck looking across the valley makes for a magical experience.
