Go at the break a of dawn, and you will have an uncrowded session at the best break available. Domes gets the most swell of the local breaks.

If you don't surf go to see the surfers doing their thing . Expect to see many surfers when the tides are big.

Actually the dome is a science center and museum.... More

Went during the week which was nice not crowded. Beach was very nice water was perfect temp you can just go right in. A little rocky in parts so try to be careful especially with the waves. But well worth the drive from San Juan I will definitely go back next time im in PR.

Located need the Faro (lighthouse) of Rincon. It is a small beach with good surfing and close enough to the Faro area where you can get snacks and access to a bathroom.

Domes is the type of beach you go to relax and enjoy the view. Yes you can get in the water, but you gotta be real careful of the waves and rocks.

This quiet beach is for surfing, My wife and I went here for the view and decided to play a bit in the water. Between the waves and the rocks it wasn't as much fun as we thought it would be, though jumping the waves was entertaining for a time, you just have to be really careful of the surfers... More

It was off season and glassy so no real action. No vendors or facilities which is okay. Smallish beach area. I think if it was high season it would be better surf watching.
