“Overhyped place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

You'll find 100/150 people at sunset here, overhyped. But worth going & spending time here. Do not forget to 'ring, ball, archery game' here.

“Good Clear View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

If you are in time you should visit this point. Fantastic Sunset Point. Many other places have taken inspiration and are called Sunset Point elsewhere. Make sure you park your cars at proper places so as you can zoom after the Sunset.

“Sunset Point's a joke”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Take my advice. Do not even visit this place. Go to Ludwick Point instead. You'll need to walk a Km ... but THAT is sunset point. This point is filled with crowds and sunset is not even clearly visible. Glad that an old man from my hotel gave me sane advice. Glad that I heeded it.

“Simply dont visit it.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

The worst sunset point I have visited in my life. Don't know why on the earth it is referred to as the sunset point when you have other points (like the Arthur Seat / Elephant Head points) from where might get better view of the setting sun.

“Sunset Point (Carnac /Mumbai Point)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

At the location, there is so much crowding that it is impossible for you to see the sun set peacefully. Most of the time there are clouds hence the sun gets obscured. Horses in the area are so many that you dont get a place to stand. Foul smell of horse dung also is overpowering which puts your mood off.
