There is no optimal time of day for seascape photography; the time you shoot at is a matter of taste. Of course, there are practical considerations such as when the tide is high, but other than that, you can create interesting seascape photos at all times. Golden hour will produce very pleasing photos with soft lighting and golden hues. When the sun is high in the sky, the sea will look amazing, due to its vivid colour at this time of day. When the sun is directly overhead and the lighting is harsh, the sea and beach will look immaculate as the sun eradicates shadows and improves the colour and lighting of both the sea and shore. Blue hour will make your images look serene and peaceful. Even shooting at night can make wonderful photos; especially if stars are visible.
