Catch a Sunset at Sunset Beach in CA

Anderson Street - Search Nearby - Added by Alex E

Photograph an amazing sunset over the mountains and ocean from Sunset Beach. Get there early to swim, surf or fish while you wait for the beautiful sunset. Afterward, head across the street to Don The Beachcomber for Don's famous Rum drinks and Tiki Bar!

Sunset Beach is located just 9 miles south of Long Beach and 6 miles North of Huntington Beach, CA on the famous Pacific Coast Highway 1. I accessed Sunset Beach from the South on I-405. I took exit 22 for Seal Beach. After the exit I turned a left/west on Seal Beach Blvd and drove for 2.6 miles until I reached CA-1. I turned left/south and drove for 2 miles. After 2 miles find public parking near the beach and walk to Sunset Beach.

From here, hike, swim, and surf along the beach to find the best place to photograph the sunset and surrounding area. Once the sun goes down, walk over to Don The Beachcomber and grab a rum drink at the Tiki Bar.

Open and Awesome

This is just a huge stretch of beach in north, north Huntington Beach, just before you get to Seal. There is a quaint little community that surrounds this area and some good restaurants as well. Awesome place for sunset photos.

Photo Worthy

Truly a beautiful sunset! We went on a Thursday evening and there was plenty of parking!

Beautiful

Amazing views of Catalina Island on a clear day!
