Sunset transforms the world, recasting the colours of your surroundings. While they are beautiful in any part of the world, I was particularly taken by sunsets in Adelaide, where the space and the Western-facing beaches really astounded me. Not content with just one view, I set out to determine the best places to see a sunset in Adelaide.
Glenelg is the most commonly recommended destination, but visiting south to Port Noarlunga also allows amazing views from the pier. For something different, Port Adelaide actually offers an interesting view, with machinery in the background. The suburb itself, of course, has some interesting places to explore, including older pubs and bars with a nice, traditional feel.

The British Hotel in Port Adelaide also offers Sunset Sessions. It is always worth a chance to enjoy a drink and some live music while the world changes around you.

My final pick for the best place to see a sunset would be overlooking the city itself. The beaches are gorgeous, but the hills around Adelaide offer a number of vantages, where you can watch the crimson sky fade, and the city itself come to life as evening sets in. Even if it might get a bit cold, it is well worth the view.
