Great views

Jul 2022 • Family

Surrounded by a lovely park, this lighthouse offers a setting where you can relax and have great views of Domes Beach (a popular surfer’s beach) , Desecheo Island, the sunset, and even whales ( between January and March). You should plan a visit to the Rincon lighthouse park just to enjoy the views. Free parking and no entrance fee. Also we have a xtra large mojito for only $10.00.

A surprising find

Feb 2020

Although this lighthouse has no information and no access, the area is surrounded by beaufiful views and depending on the time of year it is an excellent location to catch some whale watching and some local surfing. Not to far from the beach in case you feel the urge to take a dip or join the locals.

Great whale watching spot.

Apr 2019

Beautiful spot above the domes Beach where surfers are a source of entertainment . Sometimes a manatee or dolphin will join in the fun Unfortunately some of the fencing has fallen to disrepair. Needs some TLC.

Great place for pictures, surfing, and urban legends.

Jul 2019 • Couples

I remember this place when I was in high school. Rhe place had been abandoned for many years until the government decided to renovate it and created El Faro Park. As a law enforcement officer, I patrol this area almost on a weekly basis. Today 7/10/2019, I stopped for a second to take some pictures as I am patrolling in Rincón.

This beach is beautiful, and being the westernmost part of the island, it assures you the most beautiful sunsets.

Today the park looks clean, could be better? Off course, but since this is a free attraction, I suppose the government don’t want to spend money fixing the few things that are broken.

Still, you will get very nice pictures specially if you come during sunsets.

Could be a great place to have a date with a lady, if the man is a gentleman and does not play reageton on his car radio ( a true gentleman know what I mean).

A Must Visit Place — And, Some History

Mar 2019 • Family

This is an excellent place to visit when you are in the Rincon area. It is basically a park, with small Bohio. This is probably the most western point in Puerto Rico. There are great views of the ocean, Desechato island, Domes Beach to the north and the coast and cliffs towards Maria’s Beach to the south. It is up high on a cliff, so there are great photo opts everywhere. In season (Jan-March) it is a great spot for whale-watching. The 1921 Lighthouse adds to the charm of the park. There are walkways and benches, as well as ramps for wheelchairs — since the parking area is lower than the park proper. They sometimes hold events at the park — music, shows, etc.
When we first came to Rincon in the early ’70s, this area and the Lighthouse were totally overgrown with trees, bushes, etc. The area was sort of a garbage dump, with graffiti over the Lighthouse. Then in the 80’s the mayor of Rincon at the time, Rubin Caro, worked with local officials to create the El Faro park. As time went on it was developed to where it is today, with the landscaping & ammenities. It is a real boon to Rincon, the local people, and of course all the tourists who visit this area.

I loved everything, in this place: cleanliness, breathtaking view, very nice garden and the bar, too.
You can take a walk, for the Domes beach, directly from park. It’s simply beautiful.

Beach front view, sunset bar

Nice place to relax and unwind at Olas Sunset Cafe Bar, 1921 lighhouse and beach front park. Old unused nuclear reactor from the 1960’s era towards right side. Recomended.

Great way to spend a Sunday

Feb 2018

We went to Rincon to spend the day last Sunday. We had breakfast at The English Rose enjoying spectacular views and good food. Then we went to El Faro Park, where they were having a VW fair. The park was full and there were many arts and crafts exhibits and great views to enjoy. We bought some beer at a post and enjoyed it seating on a table overlooking the ocean. We also bought lobster empanadas and cheese empanadas. It was a most relaxing couple of hours, and then we moved on to have lunch and then to enjoy a magnificent sunset seating on chairs overlooking the ocean by the Beach House on Route 413. At the end of the day we left with spirits lifted and a happy heart.
