Top Places to Photograph a Sunset in Myrtle Beach

As the day fades into night, the magical colors of twilight are found painted across the Myrtle Beach skyline. While it’s nice to walk along the shore to watch the sun go down, there are other places around the Grand Strand that provide an opportunity to capture a memorable sunset. Be sure to check out these top places to take photos of colors so vivid, you won’t even need a filter!


Myrtle Beach SkyWheel

It’s breathtaking to take an evening ride on a giant oceanfront Ferris wheel on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. You’re completely enclosed in a climate-controlled glass gondola, giving you a 360-degree view of the strand. As you take flight, you are able to glance over the building tops for the most stunning, panoramic view!


2nd Avenue Pier or 14th Avenue Pier

The piers are not only a fun place to reel in a fish during the day but also quaint places to watch the sun go down at night. Snap a few pictures of the sunset before heading inside the restaurant to continue enjoying the view over dinner. And make sure to venture under the pier as well! This secret spot makes for a beautiful and artistic photograph – with the dark beams contrasting the sun and the bright colors of the sky.


Sea Captain’s House

This award-winning seafood restaurant is located oceanfront and boasts amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean. It doesn’t matter if you’re dining indoors by a window, swinging on their infamous white swing or relaxing on the outdoor patio to live music, you’re sure to witness an unforgettable glimpse of the setting sun. There is a spot at the edge of their lawn, where the grass meets the sea oats, which makes for a perfect spot for a photo op, with the ocean as the backdrop.


Murrells Inlet MarshWalk

Murrells Inlet is only a short drive away and offers a nice location to capture some photos of the sunset. As you stroll along the MarshWalk and the vibrant colors mix with clouds, there isn’t a bad spot to stop and photograph the sky and the calm waters of the marsh. Once you’ve taken a few pictures, grab a drink or enjoy dining at one of the many local restaurants scattered along the boardwalk. There are plenty of places to relax as dusk fades to night.
