Another lighthouse to visit while in Puerto Rico...has a great view looking onto Domes Beach and you could watch the surfers tackling the waves from the point. We did see some whales "blow" and roll off shore plenty of parking and no cost. Great place for pictures.

Loved this spot! We even saw a whale off shore as we were walking the grounds. There is a woman who sells sea glass jewelry in the parking lots that was great quality and she can tell you where the different glass was from. Great rock formations and watching the surfers!!

We really liked visiting the lighthouse- we actaully went at night so it was very quiet. We sat on the benches next to the lighthouse and watched the light, then walked around the grounds and listened to the waves and watched them break on the rocks. I was really impressed with how clean and beautifully kept it was.

From here, we had nice views of the coast & surfers below. Nothing spectacular but it was nice. Not worth going out of your way for.

This park is very nice with paved walkways benches to sit and take in the view. Bring your binoculars we seen 2 whales while visiting. You can not go inside the lighthouse and the restrooms were closed when we were here. Nice location for a picnic.

It's quite nice, but really honestly nothing there to do but look at the lighthouse and roll. Kinda boring honestly and not even the prettiest lighthouse I have seen. Some good views over the cliffs, stop by if you are close, but dont drive out of your way. snooze!

Had to see the lighthouse even though you can't go in it. Too bad there weren't any bathrooms open the day we were there. Domes Beach is in the distance to the right of the viewing area. Indicators Beach is to the left.

We stopped at the El Faro lighthouse several times during our Feb. vacation to Rincon. Our first visit was on a Sunday and we enjoyed watching many local residents enjoy this scenic sight with their families. The lighthouse itself is in great condition and it would have been helpful to have some plagues stating some of the lighthouse's history and... More
