Cartagena has some of the most beautiful sunsets to watch over the Caribbean Ocean, and there’s plenty of places to watch it from. We’ve listed the best bars in Cartagena for starting your evening off with a view.
Cafe Del Mar
Cafe Del Mar is one of the most popular spots in Cartagena. Especially when it’s time to catch the sunset. Sitting atop the city’s wall, this bar/restaurant provides a spectacular view of the ocean. Depending on the evening, you’ll hear sounds from their DJ of melodic deep-house , and frequently a live saxophone performance of soothing melodies that go along with the beautiful sunsets. They have an extensive menu of great drinks and food. After dark, on weekends, there is a fireworks show in the direction of Bocagrande perfectly viewable from Cafe Del Mar. Be advised, their menu is on the pricier side. Cafe Del Mar, being one of the biggest attractions in Cartagena, gets busy during sunset times. It is always recommended to make a reservation here.
Case de la Cerveza
Another bar sitting atop the city’s wall, Casa de la Cerveza is another fantastic place to watch the sunset in Cartagena. This area of the wall is located closer to the entrance of the Getsamanie area. Drinks are on the higher side here as well due to its prime location.
Rooftop Bar at Hotel Movich
The view from the rooftop bar here is spectacular. From its central location, it provides a perfect view of the ocean, the bay, and the rest of the walled city. The drinks here are a little on the pricier side as well, but you get what you pay for. This spot is one of our favorites.
51 Sky Bar
Do not miss a sunset here. This bar is located on the 51st floor of the beautiful Estelar Hotel in Bocagrande. From here you get a 360 degree view of literally everything. They have a fantastic menu of small plates and delicious cocktails. They also have great live entertainment on the weekends that goes well into the night. Prices are on the pricier side here as well.
