No matter where you are in the world, watching the sun descend over the horizon is a magical experience. However, the Caribbean, with its clear waters and kaleidoscopic skies, is a good place to start when looking for the perfect sunset.

1. Crystal Springs, Barbados

Crystal Springs is a luxury villa on the west coast of Barbados and comes complete with a myriad of balconies and winding walkways that overlook the ocean, as well as a secluded beach cove and a clifftop infinity pool. The sunsets here are short but incredibly sweet – an explosion of pinks and oranges transcends into lilacs, magentas and blues before an uninterrupted sky of stars appears.

Settle down for a traditional Bajan afternoon tea on the annex patio courtesy of the charming Crystal Springs staff, or request a delicious signature rum punch and head to the cove beach. Guests wanting to enjoy an on-water sunset can head out to sea on the villa's 5.4 metre speedboat.
