No tricks, no Photoshop here, this was taken on a phone in January 2018. Sunset in Spain can produce some stunning views. Sunrise is the same, depending on where you live, but these colours are quite breath taking.
Best Time To Visit Spain To See The Sunsets
This is a tough one to answer. The image above was taken in January, so while our family and friends in the UK were freezing with the heating on, I was sat outdoors enjoying a coffee.
- The longest day in Spain tends to be around the 20th June.

Sun in Murcia
As an indication of the differences, July 2018 saw the sun come up in Murcia between 06.45 and 07.06. Quite a difference compared to Barcalona. Sunset though was the same range, averaging 21.15 each evening.

Sunset In Spain Strategy
Even if we don’t have a camera with us, we usually have our mobile phone. Sunshine through the day and clouds at evening can produce some stunning sunsets.
It’s called ‘taking advantage.’ Being in the right place at the right time, obviously having your camera with you. You can be sure if you’re an early riser that from 06.15 onwards, you can enjoy your fresh orange and coffee watching a lovely sunrise. Eating later can also gt you the chance to see some glorious sunsets.
