Baja California, with its stunning landscapes and picturesque coastline, is blessed with breathtaking sunsets that paint the sky in hues of gold, pink, and orange. As the sun dips below the horizon, casting its warm glow across the land, it's a magical moment that captivates the hearts of locals and visitors alike. Join us on a journey as we unveil the top 10 places to witness the mesmerizing sunsets in Baja California.

1. Land's End, Cabo San Lucas:

At the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, Land's End in Cabo San Lucas offers a dramatic setting for sunset viewing. Marvel at the iconic Arch of Cabo San Lucas as the sun gracefully sets behind it, creating a truly memorable experience. To get the very best view, you have to be on a boat. You can charter a yacht half off with our friends at Baja Pass or 2 for 1 on Luxurious Sunset Sailing.

In Ensenada, La Bufadora showcases not only a magnificent blowhole but also a stunning vantage point to witness the sunset.

Getting to Ensenada from Cabo San Lucas is about a 17-hour drive, (it's fairly close to the border) so plan out a road trip and make the most out of the drive. There are many fun stops you can make along the way like Todos Santos, Guerrero Negro, and many more. Check out our Todos Santos Day Trip.
