I am a little confused. From all the maps I have seen it looks like it would see sun raise not sun set like you mentioned in your post. I would like to get pictures and was thinking sun raise as it faces the east. Am I wrong? Does it get both because of its location on the tip of the island?
I apologize for the too long delay in my reply. The beach is on the north end of the island with an east facing....so I was seriously wrong about setting sun. It's rising.
No the sun definitely sets behind you if your standing on the beach but as it's setting it creates some beautiful golden light. Sunrise would be the time to go if you want to see the sun come up over the horizon.
