Sunrises and sunsets are the two guaranteed daily celestial events that we get to witness no matter where we are in the world. But, even though the sun sets and rises on every horizon, it doubtlessly looks better in some places than others. For example, I’ve watched quite a few sunsets on I-95 during rush hour and even with a kaleidoscope of colors in the sky, sitting in a car inhaling exhaust fumes really detracts from the experience.
One of the best places to watch the sun rise and fall from the sky is the beach-but even those experiences aren’t made equal. HawaiianIslands.com just released a new study analyzing Tripadvisor data to determine which beaches have the best sunrises and sunsets. The study analyzed English-language reviews-so the results of this study are definitely from a western tourist lens.Overall, Kanyakumari Beach in India is the best beach in the world to see the sunrise, based on this analysis. Mindil Beach in Australia was named the best beach to watch the sunset. Stateside, the best sunrise beach is Driftwood Beach in Georgia, and the best sunset beach is Bean Point in Florida. (As an aside, Bean Point is simply an excellent name for a place.)
Below, you can find the best sunrises and sunsets broken down by continent:
Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.
Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.
You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.
As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
