For me, sunsets are one of the best things about being on the water. Is there a certain place where people go to watch the sunset? When I was in Hawaii and Key West, everyone went to one particular pier to see this beautiful ceremony of the sun.

Isn't the three story bar called The Yacht Club? Just south of the airport, With what seemed the highest elavation on the island I thought it was terrific. What about... my wife and I & some friends bicycled south of town about 4-5 miles[ About 1+ miles south of Caribe Island resort] brought a pic nic and sat on an old dock just past the round house that is tumped over from the hurricane. Is the road passable easily now? I went back in Jan, and while the road was passable it was really a single track for bike walk only. From that spot the sunset was clearly totally visible to the SW .

The sun doesn't set over the water, it sets over the mainland. I'm with Jane on the spectacular sunrises! I have many pictures of those. I think sunsets are harder to come by, unless you plan on being on the back side of the island, out on the water or up high when the sun sets. There are a few places with rooftop decks where you can see west, Seven Seas has one. Many times when we did make the extra effort to watch the sunset it seemed like there was a cloud layer over the mainland, blocking the last 20 minutes of sunset, so the sun setting was not nearly as awesome as the sun rising! Isn't that a ceremony of the sun as well?!
Belize it!

the only time I saw a sunset was coming back from the trip to Lamanai but it was breathtaking-Daniel stopped the boat so we all could take pictures. prior to leaving for our vacation I had read in a guide book that the place to go to see the sunset was the roof of the Casablanca Hotel. when we got to AC and asked where it was we were told the hotel no longer existed. we were up often early enough to catch the sunrises and I agree-they were beautiful. good luck.

from the people perch at Caribbean Villas also, a great place to watch the sky at night, the sunset, or once i was lucky enough to be there when a comet was visible for quite awhile, one of the big ones...

its a wooden structure designed to look down onto the littoral forest.
