World's Most Romantic Sunsets

Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur, CA

5 of 13

Deep
within Los Padres National Forest, Pfeiffer Beach is a surreal mix of purple
sand, giant redwoods, sycamores, and oaks. Offshore, a smattering of sea stacks
are scattered like biscuit crumbs across the ocean. A hole through the center
of one—known locally as “the door”—provides a
frame for the setting sun; as it dips, the rock glows like a set of
otherworldly gates in the last rays of daylight.
