Sunsets are the perfect end to your day here in Myrtle Beach. They’re relaxing, romantic and a great time to reflect on the memories made that day. While we’re on the east coast and we can’t see it set over the ocean, there are still plenty of places to enjoy the beauty of a Myrtle Beach sunset. Here are some of our favorite local spots to see a sunset around the Grand Strand.

1. Sunset Cruise

Sunset Cruise

There are a number of companies that offer sunset cruises along the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean. They offer complimentary beverages, appetizers and amazing views of the sunsets. A few of our favorites include Island Times, Express Watersports, Barefoot Princess Riverboat, East Coast BrewBoat and cruises out of the Crazy Sister Marina in Murrells Inlet.

2. SkyWheel Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach Skywheel

If you time it just right, you can board the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel at sunset to experience it from high in the sky. Your private air-conditioned gondola seats up to six people and is a fun experience for all ages. Prices start at just $13 for general admission for a 10-minute ride.

3. Gulfstream Café

Gulfstream Cafe Garden City

The stunning views at Gulfstream Café of the salt marsh and Atlantic Ocean are parallel to none along the Grand Strand. This seafood restaurant offers outdoor dining on their spacious deck and serves coastal classics like shrimp and grits, Southern fried seafood and She Crab soup. Book a reservation for sunset to experience a romantic evening with some of the best sunset views in Garden City.

4. Intracoastal Waterway

Intracoastal Waterway Sunset

Some of the most amazing chances to see the sunset in Myrtle Beach happen right along the Intracoastal Waterway. Rent a boat from a number of places around the Grand Strand or launch your own and cruise around with a cooler full of your favorite beverages and take in the myriad colors and views.

5. Filet’s Waterfront

Stop for Happy Hour at Capt’n Dilligaf’s Tiki bar at Filet’s Waterfront in North Myrtle Beach and stay for the sunset views from this Intracoastal Waterway restaurant. The tiki bar serves happy hour appetizers, sushi specials and specialty drinks. At Filet’s you have the option to dine in or eat on the deck with a full menu available. Reservations are suggested.

6. The Beach

Sunset from the Beach

It’s true that we’re known for our sunrises on our east coast beaches, but sunset isn’t a bad time to set up a blanket or chair to take in the beautiful colors. Pack a beach picnic and watch the waves crashing onto the shore for a peaceful end to your day.
