End Your Days with a Picturesque Alabama Sunset

From the minute you wake up in your cozy Beachball Properties vacation rental to the moment your head hits the pillow at night, there is no shortage of ways to fill your day. Whether you're visiting for a family getaway or an escape with your closest friends, our properties in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, and Fort Morgan put you near the best things to do along the Gulf Coast. With so much to do and see, it can be challenging to enjoy the quiet moments, but a fantastic way to relax each day is by watching a gorgeous Alabama sunset from the best viewing spots.

Where to See the Perfect Sunset

One of the best and most convenient places to watch the sunset is right from your vacation rental. However, vacations are all about discovering new places, so check out Mother Nature's show from some of the top vantage points along the Gulf Coast.

  • With two miles of beaches, Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores has plenty of sandy shoreline to lay your blanket out on as you watch the sun sink into the horizon. Consider getting there early to explore hiking trails, open until sunset. 

  • Found on the west end of Gulf Shores, the beach by Fort Morgan is the ideal spot to end your day. The historical site is generally closed before sunset, but you can walk along the beach toward the Gulf.

  • Book a sunset cruise with local charters like The Fun Boats or Cetacean Dolphin and Sailing Cruises. Breathing in the fresh air as the Gulf gently rocks you back and forth allows you to reflect on the memories made that day as the sun sets on a fun-filled day.

  • If you're looking for dinner and a show, there are several restaurants with outdoor spaces or large windows to choose from. Lulu's in Gulf Shores, The Gulf, and The Beach House all offer delicious dishes and stunning views.

  • Of course, a top spot for a sunset experience is one of the numerous public beaches in the area. Pick up take-out from a local restaurant and enjoy a later picnic dinner as you experience the beauty of an Alabama sunset.
