Absolutely great for whale watching, and the best sunsets with Desecheo Island in the back drop. Also the beach below, called DOMES, hosts one of the best surfing spots in Puerto Rico for all spectrum of surfers ( beginners to advanced)

Lighthouse park or El Faro Park has great views. You can get some great pics. It can be a bit windy but its a great stop. Enjoy!

Beautiful area! Lovely views towards Maria's Beach and Domes Beach from the lighthouse area. Nice overlook to watch the surfers at Domes. We spotted an iguana in a tree. We went back one evening to watch the sunset. Excellent sunset view! Plenty of parking. Wasn't crowded either time we were there.

This place is so quite and peaceful. You can enjoy the sunset and the surfers. Walk and enjoy the wind in your face. Rincon for me is magical !

If you're in Rincon stop by the Lighthouse anytime, but especially at sunset, for an outstanding view of the ocean, you can see three great breaks at once: Maria's, Indicators, and Dome's, amidst a beautiful park. If you can't find the Lighthouse stoop by the post office and ask Teri and Nathan at the Surfing Potato food cart for directions!
