Where to Catch a Sunset on the Eastern Shore of Maryland

1. Olivia’s Cottage at Brampton Inn

Our all-time favorite spot to watch the sunset is Olivia’s Cottage—one of our most popular accommodations here at Brampton Inn! It sits at the edge of a tranquil, private meadow. Though you aren’t actually on the water here, you won’t see the sun disappearing over the horizon, but you will see the sky explode into breathtaking orange and pink hues.

2. Beach Avenue in Rock Hall

If you’re searching for a waterfront sunset, head just a few minutes away from Brampton Inn to the town of Rock Hall. Here, locals park their cars in about a dozen parking spots facing the beach, chat, and watch the sun sink below the water. Beach Avenue is a hidden gem here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland!

3. The Sandbar at Rolph’s Wharf

The Sandbar at Rolph’s Wharf is a place where you can sit in an Adirondack chair with a drink (or a book!) in your hand, and your feet in the sand. This experience is really special to us! We don’t tell everyone about this local secret, so if you’re interested, be sure to ask us for more information!

4. A Blue Crab Charter

We love Captain Mark and his First (and Only) Mate, Suzanne! Blue Crab Charters operates various cruises every day in the summer, but a sunset cruise with this company is hard to beat. This is the activity we recommend most to our guests!

5. Waterman’s Crab House Deck

Waterman’s Crab House—one of the best Rock Hall restaurants—is the place to go for steamed crabs. The view from their deck is the place to go for waterfront sunsets! If you’re planning on grabbing dinner over in Rock Hall, be sure to add sunset-spotting from the deck to your itinerary, as well.olivia's cottage
