Red sky at night

No two sunsets are alike. The same can be said for destinations – each is unique and beautiful in its own way. Emiliana Adriano picks six places where you'll find the perfect combinations of scenery and sunset.

Santorini, Greece Greece
With its natural beauty off the coast, complete with aqua blue waters and alluring cliff tops, it’s not difficult to see why Greece is on our list of places to catch the perfect sunset. The sun highlights old structural buildings and reflects a warm glow that lights up the city and illuminates the sea. Vibrant colours set against dark hilltops is what makes Grecian sunsets truly remarkable.

Bali sunset Bali
With endless untouched beaches and open vistas across a clear sea, the Indonesian sunset boasts a myriad of orange, yellow, pink and purple; a stunning spectacle set against the horizon.

The French Alps The French Alps
Described as the ‘Alpine Glow’ – a rainbow of colours set as a backdrop for picturesque valleys and rolling heals. Sunsets in the French Alps boast an incredible contrast of colour between the crisp white snowy mountains and vibrant, warm skies. Club Med has over 16 ski resorts in the French Alps, so you are spoilt for choice when it comes to picking the perfect spot to enjoy a French Alpine sunset (and the snow.)

Kalk Bay, Cape Town South Africa
It should come as no surprise that South African features on this list. The interesting thing about sunsets across South Africa is that a sunset in Cape Town will differ from a sunset in the Highveld – one as unique as the other.

Cancun, Mexican Mexico
Palm trees, sandy beaches and waves lapping the shore all set the tone for a magical experience. A true fiesta of colours, the Mexican sunset is one of rich vibrancy; a montage of warm oranges and deep blues contrasted with soft pinks and deep purples. A Mexican sunset is bound to leave you breathless.

Maldives The Maldives
During the summer season, high humidity combined with strange cloudy skies give the Maldives the most breath-taking and remarkable sunsets. Admire it from a sandbank to experience a true moment of enchantment;. It's a great time to wonder and reflect and the perfect combination of tranquility and magic.
