15 Of the best sunset spots in South Africa

Few things will get you into that summer mood than sitting back and watching the sun disappear across the horizon, painting the sky with ice cream colours that has inspired many an artist and Instagram influencer.

In South Africa, we are blessed with beautiful sunsets all along the coastline, behind rugged mountains and dips behind the indigenous trees and animals of the bushveld.

It's one of the perfect ways to end off a long day, but some spots are guaranteed to give you the best sunsets that South Africa can muster.
