Best sunset points in India

Whether over the Aravalli mountain range, a beach in Goa or a world heritage monument, the romance of India’s sunsets will help you create the perfect atmosphere with your special someone.

Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu

As the southernmost tip of India, Kanyakumari is probably the most visited sunset point in India — simply because it is known for both its spectacular sunrises and sunsets! These stunning sights no doubt continue to attract photographers from all over the world.

Palolem beach, Goa

Any of the Goan beaches offer a breath-taking sunset but Palolem beach is relatively quieter which enhances the romantic atmosphere of the setting sun over the calm, still waters of the Arabian Sea.

Pushkar, Rajasthan

The sunsets here form a picturesque backdrop to the drama of the Aravalli range, one of the world’s oldest mountain ranges. Take the train from Jaipur to enjoy the beauty of Puskar’s sunsets.

Taj Mahal, Agra

Nothing quite frames the milky white Taj Mahal better than a glowing sunset in one of the most romantic places in the world. If you really want to set the scene for romance, stay longer to enjoy the moonrise too.
