I loved this spot. There were shelters that are perfect for eating a picnic lunch. You could watch the surfers at Domes and Marias beaches. It was amazing. We were looking for whales but weren't lucky enough to see any.

This lighthouse in Rincon is a great place to visit and enjoy then views. You can see surfers on Domes beach, and you can see Desecheo island off in the distance. It is a great place to catch a sunset. Don't expect much to do here. It is just a great place to relax, unwind, and catch some great views... More

Exactly what you would expect. The lighthouse is just one part of this experience. The lookout is what's breathtaking!

We visited the light house at night and the sound of the ocean was like music to your ears, so we decided to return during the day so we could get a good look at the grounds and the ocean. The view was breathtaking. We stopped along the way to see the many surfers trying to catch a wave.

The lighthouse is in El Faro Park and sometimes referred to as El Faro lighthouse. The park overlooks the ocean on cliffs with great views. Other then the views and watching the surfers not much else to do. Their was a icecream vendor on site and some vendors selling jewelry in parking lot but that is all.

It's a small non-accessible lighthouse on top of some cliffs. There is a walkway that was built along the cliffs with several lookout points. The views are very nice and you can watch the surfers below. The grounds are maintained well and there is a bathroom. Overall I rated it average because there isn't anything to do once your there...

... stay for the grand views! You'll quickly be drawn to the point at Punta Higuera. It was cloudy and the sun had already set, but the views still kept our attention. Desecheo Island was visible in the Mona Passage. Surfers were still searching for waves off Domes Beach. Jagged volcanic rocks stood sentry to breakers making their way into... More

I thought we would look at a lighthouse and be done. But they have built a beautiful park around this lighthouse, with shade, seating and bathrooms. I sat in the shade with the cool sea breeze overlooking the water for quite some time. It's very well kept and clean. I was impressed!
