If sunset is your favorite time of day, then Monterey County is where you want to be.
5 Best Sunset Spots in Monterey County
Carmel Beach, Carmel-by-the-Sea
This dog-friendly spot is a fan favorite among both locals and tourists. The white sand, cypress trees, and beach bonfires will make all of your social media friends jealous.
Asilomar State Beach, Pacific Grove
There’s plenty of places to view the sun setting from Asilomar State Beach — some of them you don’t even have to get out of your car! Keep an eye out for sea otters, whales, and this spot is famous for the green flash!
Marina State Beach, Marina
Everyone has a front row seat to the sunset at Marina State Beach, so don’t worry. While you’re snapping away, you may also catch a hang glider breeze through the sky — this location is a prime spot to soar above the shoreline.
McWay Falls, Big Sur
McWay Falls just so happens to be one of the only fresh waterfalls, and it’s right here in Pacific Grove! Some pictures end up looking like a Hawaiian beach, with the turquoise hue from the ocean and the golden beams from the sun.
Pinnacles National Park, Soledad
And last but not least, Pinnacles National Park. One of our favorite non-beach locations to get a good sunset view!
