Nothing spells a romantic date quite like an evening at Henderson Waves. This bridge mimics the unique shape of a wave and is a popular spot for joggers, family and couples. Not only does it offer a stunning view of the sunset from an elevated height; the bridge also lights up in the most beautiful way as dusk falls.

As every photographer has learnt the hard way, the ineffable beauty of a sunset is impossible to capture on film. Visual beauty of sundown aside, bathe yourself in the tranquil, euphoric, and almost tear-jerking phenomenon of the sun’s last moments.

So do yourself a favour — take some time off this evening and fathom how beautiful the world can be, even if it’s just for a short 30 minutes.
