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!

The grounds are very well maintained. The lighthouse was closed though and there were no souvenir shops like there used to be. Still a great place to catch beautiful views of the west and beautiful sunsets.

We definitely enjoyed the views. Also we went there during a lightning storm one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. We did however, find that during the day the women's restroom was locked. The men's restroom was in decent shape. There are a couple of places where the railing is missing. All in all though, it's worth a visit for the... More

For either chilling in the park or for taking high up pictures of both Maria's Beach or Dome's Beach surfers, this is the spot. There are also nice views of Desecheo Island and a couple of artisan street vendors to top it off.

Had we missed stopping here, I wouldn't have been devastated, but I'm glad we saw it briefly one afternoon. It's probably quite stunning around sunset. The lighthouse and grounds are well maintained and the view is pretty. Parking was easy and it wasn't out of the way for us to check it out, but really all of the area is... More

The view is spectacular, any way you look. Beautifully maintained grounds. Very family friendly spot. I'd like to return for sunset.
