  • it's a good location for photo ops. we liked the open area. watch surfer at Domes beach etc. Great for Sunset viewing 
  • Went here one night and there was a beautiful rainbow across the sky. The pictures that you can take here are phenomenal. Really meant for walking around to admire the view and take pictures. 
  • One of the cool things in Puerto Rico is to visit the different lighthouse around the island. There are only a few lighthouse that are almost complete but the broken ones are the best ones to admire.

  • Most beautiful spot on the island to watch the sunset. Breathtaking views of the Atlantic and the Caribbean on either side and lots of space to sit on either benches or the grass. Perfect for a picnic and watching the sunset or just watching the surfers on both sides during the day.
  • Beautifull sunsets, clean area and sanitaries are clean. Fui domingo y habian Artesanias.
  • Great "park" to enjoy breathtaking sunset view! Nice lighthouse too!
  • The view is spectacular no matter where you look! The grounds are well maintained with a photo opportunity everywhere!
  • Great place to go. The green areas are clean but the bathrooms not. I like this place.
