Sunset in Dubai – Places to Watch From
1. Burj Khalifa
What’s better than one sunset? Well, how about two? When you are talking about iconic sunsets, the world’s tallest building is always in the conversation.
Stand at the ground level of the spectacular skyscraper and you will see the sunset like any other normal day. Take yourself 124 floors up into the Dubai sky by immediately visiting At The Top Burj Khalifa, and the sheer height you have traveled up allows you to enjoy it all over again – this time with awe-inspiring views of the city in the foreground as your vista is lit by the day’s final embers of sunlight.
2. Address Beach Resort Infinity Pool
We all love a great infinity pool, but when it happens to be the world’s tallest and has incredible views over some of Dubai’s most recognizable locations, such as JBR, Dubai Marina, and The Palm Jumeirah this really is something special.
Relax in the pool’s warm waters, and drift away as the sun lowers in the sky, casting a beautiful hue on an already spectacular view.

3. Sky Views Edge walk
If you like a serving of adrenaline with your sunsets, then the Sky Views Edge walk is the place for you. Located at the Address Sky View Hotel, you can simply walk outside the building, and get an unobstructed panoramic view of Dubai’s famous skyline. Nevertheless, if you time your visit to coincide with the sunset in Dubai, you will have an even more memorable experience.
4. Marina view from Address Dubai Marina
Dubai Marina is another wonderful sunset location. See the world’s largest man-made marina, along with its spectacular yachts, and stunning architecture bathed in orange, yellow, and red hues as the sun slips out of sight. This is a vibrant lively neighborhood, but with a chilled-out feel that is perfect for those late afternoon strolls or early evening meals and beverages.
5. Dubai Creek Harbour
Sunsets can be enjoyed from a new vantage point along Dubai Creek. The tranquil waterfront and proximity to Downtown Dubai make for a stunning skyline view. Here, you can unwind completely while taking in the splendor of the surroundings.
You should definitely check out the Vida Creek Harbour Views Skyline if you find yourself in that part of town. Nearly everywhere in the hotel provides a picture-perfect backdrop for a beautiful sunset in Dubai, but the pool terrace is a particularly stunning vantage point offering an exceptional experience.

A piece of green tranquility in Downtown Dubai, Burj Park is the perfect spot for some early evening relaxation. Set in spectacular surroundings, this is a little piece of quiet in the heart of the city. Watch the sun set behind iconic skyscrapers, as chinks of light break through gaps in the buildings offering a warm glow to end the day. This man-made island is perfect for an evening stroll or taking a moment to breathe and release some of the stresses of the day.
