This was an easy beach to find and there is plenty of parking. It's located right next to El Faro light house and you can see the beach if you visit the lighthouse. The day we went there were literally 3 people on the beach and they were just relaxing in the shade. There was a lot of seaweed/grass right... More

We spent time at a nearby park overlooking the beautiful beach. So peaceful and calm! We enjoyed watching some surfers catch a few waves too.

My partner and I are staying in the Rincon area. Our rental house had a great beach, but we decided to venture out and check out some of the local spots. We chose Domes Beach because it looked absolutely beautiful and it wasn't crowed at all. The water was pretty clear for the most part, but there was an area... More

This is a beach next to an old nuclear reactor (the whith Dome) that has white sands and beautiful palm trees. It's great for swimmers and for surfing. You can also watch whales during Jan-Feb months.

This is where they hold competitions for major surf events (or, one of the places). In winter, they can have waves of 20-40' breaking a half mile off shore. In the summer, it's pretty calm. The sand stops at the water so it's a very rocky beach for anything but surfing.

We went to this beach to watch the sunset. There were lots of great spots to sit and enjoy the view-even a swing! There is a medium sized parking lot there, also.

Went there with my hubby some weeks ago. Place is so cool, I know it's a surfer's beach, but, hey, sun tanning and bathing are fine... if YOU know there's hard currents there, don't mind, but be careful. Anyway, I'll give it a 5, but I didn't because I think that a popular place like this needs at least a... More

Breath taking, lived here most of my life and I didn't know this existed. The atmosphere was amazing, local yet had a mixture of cultures like I have never experienced.
