“Nice place to relax”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Nothing big nothing fancy but great for pictures and for a calm sit down on a bench over see surfers and waves crashing plus an awsome view of a close island and tropical breeze , Good romantic place and awsome calm place . Do not expect crowds or lots of activity . the light house itself is just common . and not great deal . park around is kind of cool

“Nice and well maintained lighthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The El Faro lighthouse was very clean and well maintained. From the lighthouse, you can see Dome Beach, Maria's Beach, and Steps Beach. The views are amazing without having to climb up as it was closed because of pending Tropical Storm Isaac. Nice place to visit with the family.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Nice view, cool breeze are felt here, good food. And a relaxing atmosphere . Not much for fun and intertaining. A couple of hrs stay would be more then enough.

“Nice park great place for sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Nice little light house and a nice clean park. Good place to view the sunset. There are some very good areas to take pictures and you don't need to be there long to see the light house. Also a nice beach and place to swim near by
