It's not too hard to find a spot to take-in the sunset at Seabrook. When it comes to finding a good spot, simplicity is key. Here is our list of top locations within Seabrook to catch an amazing sunset.
OVERLOOK PARK | ELK CREEK NEIGHBORHOOD
Overlook Park is one of Seabrook's newest parks and is perfect for watching sunsets. Located in the Elk Creek neighborhood, Overlook Park is perfectly situated along the bluff of Elk Creek with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean. The park features the perfect wooden bench to enjoy a glass of wine and a world-class sunset.
Located at the Front Street entrance next to the Front Street Market, the Sunset Amphitheater is home to many music performances at Seabrook. It's the perfect gathering spot for a sunset picnic because there is plenty of space and the views are amazing. If you're looking for a place to watch the sun set with a large group, the Sunset Amphitheater is highly recommended because of it's ease of access, proximity to town, and wide-open spaces.
ON THE BEACH
Speaking of wide-open space, the beach has it all. Unencumbered views of the sun and mighty Pacific Ocean, beautiful scenery, views of the bluffs, and more. At Seabrook, there's multiple ways to get down to the beach. If you're heading in from the Farm District or Mill District, take Gnome Trail down to the beach for the quickest access. Another way to access the beach is through the Pacific Glen neighborhood. This way will take you past the Gazeebo in the conservation area, which is another great place to view the sunset. Finally, the most popular way to access the beach is from the Northwest Glen entrance, which is the walkway across from the Sunset Amphitheater. However you access the beach, make sure to pack the essentials: blanket, sunglass, camera, and some snacks and drinks.
Sometimes you just want to enjoy the sunset and have a nice meal at the same time. For those nights, Mill 109 is the perfect destination. Situated slightly above the Sunset Amphitheater, The Mill offers some unique angles and perspectives that create some really nice views. While you're here, you order your favorite drink and appetizer to enjoy as you watch the sun go down over the mighty Pacific.

If you're heading to the beach from town, just headdown the walkway next to the Front Street Market, cross SR-109 at the crosswalk and take a right. One of the reasons this spot is so popular is because it produces some of the most amazing and expansive views, like the one above.
TOWN GREEN PARK | SOMA DISTRICT
