There is nothing better than a stunning sunset splashed across an unfamiliar landscape. So, if you are looking to enjoy a show in the sky, keep these two key ingredients in mind: weather and location (face it, even though we love watching the sun set in the east, its best viewed facing west). Regardless of whether the sky is scarlet or lavender, viewed against city skylines or coastal hues, Siren has been documenting our favourite hideaways to share with you. Don’t wait until the sun goes down to look at the sky, these 10 places will have you sungazing your evenings away.

Red skies by night, sailor’s delight!
