Five Jaw-Dropping Sunset Spots

The Best Spots in Greater Zion to Watch a Sunset

Who isn’t a sucker for good sunset spots? Whether for romantic reasons, photography or just the awe of it all, Greater Zion delivers. Orange, yellow and red skies, filled with misty clouds close out our days more often than not. Check out these top spots for watching a sunset on your visit to the area.

Washington Fields

Find a spot that overlooks the fields in Washington, Utah. With the lush, green trees, soaring buttes and the flowing river reflecting a glowing sun, this is by far a local favorite.

Sunbrook Golf Course

The golf course is a great way to unwind with some friends and take in the beauty of the outdoors. Sunbrook is a St. George City course that is worthy of praise, but especially at sunset. Grab your sticks and plan your next round of golf in the evening.

Zion National Park

Zion, oh Zion! We could blog, post, share, and photograph Zion for years and never find an end to the beauty. This shot taken and titled “Sunset on the Temple” falls in line perfectly as one of the top jaw-dropping sunset spots. With a variety of hikes that take you deep inside the canyon walls of this stunning national park, make sure you plan accordingly and set yourself up towards the top of the park to catch the sunset at the end of the day.

Sand Hollow State Park

With enough color to make a rainbow jealous, Sand Hollow State Park couldn’t be left off the list!  Clear blue waters, stunning red sand, and vistas lend to a stunning sunset every time. Whether you are playing on a boat, recreating in the park or simply taking a walk on the soft beach, make sure you plan a trip that involves a sunset or two.

Last but not least, another Zion shot… we couldn’t help ourselves. Photographer Bill Ratcliffe nailed this one. No further words needed. Enjoy the sunset!
