How to Find the Perfect Charleston, SC, Sunset

On the Beach

The beaches in Charleston are gorgeous enough on their own, but have you ever been on the beach at sunset? The sun sets in the West, but the skyline is still painted with incredible shades of red and orange as it makes its way past the marshland scenery. Better yet, East Coast beaches are the perfect place to watch a moonrise. Just as the warm glow of the sun fades into nothingness, the moon is starting its shift for the night, giving you just enough of the sun’s energy to make a moonlit stroll possible!

On a Rooftop

The only way to truly capture a sunset in Charleston is from atop one of the city’s many rooftop bars or patios. Enjoy the last few rays of sunshine as they wash over the landscape. From here, you can see it all. Enjoy views of Charleston Harbor and the intracoastal waterways as you get a chance to enjoy the civil twilight in every direction. If you’re trying to find the perfect view, try The Watch’s rooftop bar!

Sunset Cruises

Another jaw-dropping way to wrap up your day is with one of Charleston’s incredible sunset cruises. Make your way across Charleston Harbor and admire the city from the water. There really isn’t a view from land that can compare. These private or group charters set the perfect scene for romance.
