Beautiful views

The park surrounding the lighthouse is lovely and the views are great, especially at sunset. The lighthouse is just that- a lighthouse that isn't accessible.

A nice place some good pictures. Hidden deep in Rincon, a must see place for some relaxing past times. The locals have ice cream and hand crafted bracelets, necklace and more. There is also a nice little limonade stand to battle the hot sun. They do not use natural flavors (artificial) and add about a pound of ice but still... More

I was very pleasantly surprised when we went to look at the lighthouse. It's a very nice park built around this lighthouse. There are plenty of places to sit many with trees around for shade. Combine that with the cool sea breeze and you are in sheer bliss while overlooking the fabulous sea. We thought we would take a few... More

Perfect place to see the sunset... Lovely, quiet, peaceful. Very nice place to have a romantic or familiar picnic. Not a big place at all, but it is worth it strolling with a special one.

Go. Go just before sunset. Grab a spot at the beach. Sit back. Enjoy mother nature at her best. Gorgeous sunset! I felt all the stress just leaving my body and mind.

I highly recommend taking time to visit this lighthouse among many other things to do in Rincon and surrounding towns.

The views were nice and the cost was $12pp. I was happy to support the park and its goal of saving the ecosystem of eastern Puerto Rico. We did not go at night so didn't see the bioluminescent bay.

The lighthouse had many places to sit and relax. Couldn't go into the lighthouse but the view made up for it. They had local people selling different items which was a great spot to shop. The people are all so sweet and many locals come there to hang out and play dominoes! Fun to watch!

Beautifully landscaped, gorgeous views, very peaceful. We were able to video the waves crashing on the rocks and take beautiful scenery photos. A must-see if you're in Rincon.

We were staying close by, so we walked most of the way to the lighthouse via the beach. The lighthouse itself wasn't open, so we couldn't check out the views from up top. The views of the ocean from the park were beautiful. While we were there we saw two Iguanas - really cool! The largest one was hanging around... More
