Every great vacation includes time to slow down and enjoy the sunset. We think the best place to enjoy it is sitting on the deck of your vacation rental, but there are other great Galveston sunset spots too – including “meals with a view” options!
Galveston Island is no more than 3 miles across at its widest point, so vibrant sunset views can be had just about anywhere on the West End of the island. Beach or bay, it’s as easy as walking onto your rental’s deck to watch the sun sink slowly over the water.
