“Worth a Quick Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

The lighthouse is neat and worth a quick stop. Beautiful views from the board walk along the area and right next to Domes Beach.

I wouldn't go out of my way to check this out as it's views aren't unique to the area.

Free parking, secure feeling, lovely view over Domes Beach.
Very well maintained. Rest rooms very nice and fully accessible.
Terrific spot for watching surfers if the waves are up.

“Beautiful grounds...gorgeous view of the ocean too.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This is a very nicely kept parklike area. The lighthouse is beautiful but the grounds and ocean views are awesome!! I would recommend this as a stop if you are in the Rincon area of Puerto Rico.

“Scenic spot for taking photos & watching surfers @ Domes Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Visited Rincon Lighthouse on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Plenty of free parking, well maintained grounds, and incredible views for watching the surfers along Domes Beach! However, both the mens' and womens' bathrooms were locked/closed, which seemed very strange for a public park on a busy day.

“Try going at night...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Honestly, the sunset is gorgeous from anywhere in Rincon as it faces west; but, I didn't see it here. Rather, we came here in the middle of the night on a new moon. There was no gate or anything in the parking lot, so it was very easy to access. I still felt safe, though, in a small group of four. There were mainly couples there doing...romantic...things in the shadows, and a few groups of people smoking. All in all a very chill and dark place to come at night.

We came at night as a place to meet up with friends, but stayed because the stars were absolutely gorgeous. There are tons of benches around and very little ambient light. So, this was a perfect and comfortable place to chat with friends and stargaze. Perhaps one of the clearest views of the stars I have ever seen in my life.
