Whether your choice is a slow, relaxing sunrise over the lagoon in Venice, or climbing to the top of an active volcano to watch the sunrise in Hawai’i, here are a list of places to choose from that have been selected as the best spots to see the sun rise.
Haleakala means “House of the Sun” in Hawaiian, and definitely lives up to its name. Those who make it to the top are treated to a view of the sun turning the landscape of the mountain a golden red, before rising through the clouds.
The raised hills of the island afford it amazing views over the ocean, which makes it easier to see the spectacle of the sun rising slowly from the water. For the best sunrise spots away from tourists, try the village of Oia, or ancient Thira.
The very first spot where you can see the sun rise on Earth. Located on the island of Savaii, local legend holds that the rocky promontory at the end of the cape is the place where the dead pass into the underworld.
