Faro de Punta Higüera


Rincón's lighthouse, Faro de Punta Higüera, was built in 1892 to cover the distance between two other lighthouses on Puerto Rico's west coast. Since 1993 the lighthouse has functioned as a recreational park with a maritime museum, kiosks, and an observation deck that looks out to the Atlantic Ocean. Depending on the time of year, whales sightings might be possible. The lighthouse is right next to Domes Beach in Rincón, a surfer beach where surfing competitions are routinely held.
