Domes is a fun spot. Several takeoff zones for the long right-hander off the main point, and an inside left further down the beach (southbound) that is steeper and a bit bowlier. If you've never surfed Domes, be prepared encounter what might be the most crowded lineup of your life (unless you're used to the North Shore). If you don't... More

My partner and I decided to check out Domes Beach, having heard so much about the surf culture at Rincon. We were both surprised by how fascinating it was to watch the surfers, some of whom were really awesome, even though the waves weren't especially high that day. We watched for over and hour. I recommend it. If you are... More

Even though the sign says "locals only" everybody is very friendly. This is the best area for consistent surfing waves. There are areas fthis beach where you are entirely alone. Great view of Desecheo Island.

When the swell is up this is the place to go & surf or watch the surfers. You can view the action from the beach or from the north-end of the El Faro lighthouse park. My niece went surfing here yesterday. She is an experienced surfer, but she thought the waves were strong & bigger than they looked from the... More

Domes Beach is located in the town of Rincon, Puerto Rico and is famous for its big surfing waves. We have visited the area many times and I would only recommend this particular surfing beach for folks that are well seasoned surfers. Marias Beach which is just around the corner has several good surfing breaks that are good for beginners... More

Walk to end of beach parking lot and continue on the trail to the Spanish Wall. This is one of only two sections left in PR where the railway during early 1900's to transport of sugar cane from around the island is located.

This was the best place to watch surfers in Rincon. The beach was nice also because it had some shady spots to get out of the sun for awhile.

This was my favorite beach in Rincon. Great place for watching people and surfers. Domes Beach is located near The El Faro Lighthouse. This beach is not good for swimming but great surfing. Calypso restaurant is located near here and have decent sandwiches and drinks. If you want a quiet beach and enjoy surfers or surfing this is the best... More

Quiet and pretty beach. Fun to sit back and watch the surfers, not good swiming. Very hippy chic and fun people watching, very pretty in morning and evening. Quiet and not a lot of people. Nice place to read and relax if you dont want to get in the water.

Great beach to sit and watch local surfers with skills. We ended up staying over 2 hours and grabbed lunch at a nearby restaurant afterwards.
