best (in any) place to watch the sunset? - 01/25/04 05:51 PM

are there any good restaurants/bars where you can go to watch the sunset on AC? seems to me that they must all face east out to sea...so great sunrises...but not so good sunset views?

places like negril jamaica or key west are known for their spectacular sunsets...but i'm thinking this isn't one of the AC highlight experiences since i haven't read much mention of sunsets or seen photos...am i wrong?

Hey Mike:
How about a sunset cruise on El Gato catamaran with Capt. Geraldo.
It is wonderful,have some rum punch
and watch the sun go down. Nothing better.
Just call geraldo on his cell phone 608 8036.
to arrange it. smile smile

Don't know about any restaurant views but some of the best sunsets are from there on A.C.
This was from the Tres Cocos area just north of the cut overlooking the lagoon.

Best viewing of the sunsets is from a boat moving up or down the island, that big red ball of sun, flashing thru the trees, like God has a spotlight on you, in his turquoise water.
Magical ride.

Barry that picture site did not open for me.

A new spot to watch the sunset that we liked last week on our visit was The Hammock House. It is just north of the cut. (The hand ferry now runs 24 hours a day.) There is a 2 for 1 Belikin/Rum special, plus live music. Grab a drink, a snack, an empty hammock and enjoy the view.

I just got back from my trip, and have catching up to do, but I do have photos of this sunset and will post them later.

Sigh... I wish I were still in Belize. It's too cold here.

I (sort of) am! For some reason I'm not very productive yet. Hmmmm.

Peter, BTW... I'm going to have to admit that you are right again on another topic. Augh!! Beth and I will explain later.

Back to work (you know... I'm a high powered executive and all wink ). - Laura

thank you all for the tips...

guess we'll have time to figure it out over the course of 10 days...

since we are VERY EARLY risers...sunrises will be a special treat from a balcony at banana beach...looking out to sea...i'm sure that can be a visual delight...with the first cup of coffee in the morning!

wow...that IS a view worth getting up early for! the thought of being in that very spot with a fresh cup of coffee every morning for 10 days makes it almost bearable to make it thru the next four weeks in this frozen climate!

waking up here to MORE snow and freezing rain/sleet and facing the drive to work soon...i will keep looking at that sunrise and counting down the days!

can't wait to post my OWN pics with ME in that picture! cool

Mikell,

When you are watching the sunrise, don't forget to look behind you to the west. I got one of my greatest pictures of the sun shining on the clouds behind me. I didn't take this one with my digital, so I can't post it, but it was my best sunrise picture.

cool cool Kathy

Thanks to all of you who are posting pictures of sunsets and sunrises and that beautiful water. My pal and I arrive in Belize mid-February for a week at Blackbird Caye Resort for some heavy duty snorkeling, sunning, sleeping, reading. Then off to the mountains for a few days and ending our trip on Ambergris Caye. This is her first trip and my second and we are oh-so-ready. Two feet of snow yesterday alone. Cold, cold, cold. But, hey, I do live in northern Minnesota so I shouldn't be too surprised. I love it here, but can't wait to get to the tropics for three weeks. Maybe we'll run into some of you while we're there. Maybe posters to this chat room should have signals or wear a red rose or a tattoo, ya, that's the ticket, a tattoo.

Kathy's right -

many of the world's best photographers will tell you...just before you push that button, look behind you, the better picture often may be behind you.
