What better way to end a day in paradise than to view the most magical sunsets in the world? Here are 20 sunset photographs to prove that this state is a stunning, gorgeous place, and we should be lucky to call Hawaii home.

The silhouette of the palm trees against this vibrant sunset is stunning.

If I could, I would watch the sun set everyday.

Finding a more stunning backdrop for a gorgeous sunset is difficult.
6) “Thursday After the Storm” by Belinda
The clouds after this storm are oddly serene.

I’m pretty sure the sky isn’t meant to be orange, and the water is not supposed to be purple… but it sure is gorgeous.
8) “Kauai Sunset” by Frank Kovalchek
We are so lucky to be able to call such a magical place home.
9) “Hawaiian Sunset 2” by Mike

Where better to view a sunset than at Sunset Beach?

Could there really be anywhere better than Hawaii?
17) “Colors in the Sky” by y-a-n
This cityscape is a welcome alternative to all the beach shots, isn’t it?
18) "Untitled” by Keith Wills
I might be wildly jealous that Keith was able to capture such a brilliant moment.
I’m afraid that photos really don’t do these sunsets justice – so, grab a loved one and a blanket, and head to any west-facing point to experience a perfect Hawaiian sunset.
