4 Romantic Places in St. Augustine to Watch the Sunset

The sunset view from the top of a lighthouse

Whether you are bringing your special date on a romantic getaway for Valentine’s Day or you have lived here in beautiful Historic St. Augustine with your significant other for years, there are stunning locations available to see the sunset. Here are our favorites:

Under the Vilano Bridge

Under the Vilano bridge there is a little walkway that leads to benches. It gives you a beautiful waterfront sunset view. Pack a picnic and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Castillo de San Marcos

Castillo de San Marcos has an amazing view of the water and is a local favorite to watch the sunset. Walk along the wall to the back side of the fort where there are less people. Bring a blanket if you plan on sitting on the wall as the coquina can be sharp.

Sunset Cruise

A unique way to view the setting sun is a sunset cruise tour. There are so many in St. Augustine to choose from. You can pick a private charter for a romantic night or you can go with a group. Either way seeing the sunset over the horizon is breathtaking.

St. Augustine Lighthouse

Visit the St. Augustine Lighthouse. Climbing to the top might not be your cup of tea but if you do it's worth every step. From the top of the lighthouse, you get a 360 degree view of St. Augustine’s skyline. When the sunset gives off a pink glow you have never seen the city more beautiful.
