  • This place is worth the stop. The lighthouse includes a lovely boardwalk with a gorgeous view of the ocean and a lovely breeze. There is also kiosks selling drinks, etc.

  • This is a great stop whether for a few minutes or much longer. Scenic with fantastic views. Nice grounds and tiki bar offers great drinks and food. A highlight of the area.

  • Very nice lighthouse and park. Lots of areas to seat and/or just admire the beautiful beach nearby. We were lucky to see whales!!! Also, there was a surfing competition the same day we were there, so it was nice to watch it for a while. There were local vendors on the parking lot selling crafts. I'm not sure if it is always there or just because of the surfing competition. Anyway, nice place to stop by, take pics and enjoy the views!
  • Beautiful historical light house, and the ocean very is peaceful. While we were there we spotted two humpback whales in the water. 🐋 We watched the sunset on the horizon. It was a great way to spend the evening. There is also restrooms inside the park and a small cafe with a bar as well.
  • Wonderful Views and Experience. If you are visiting the West Side of Puerto Rico, you have to make a stop on each of the lighthouses of the West. But the most impressive of them all, is the Punta Higueras. The view from this place is spectacular, you can see the Mona Island from the place and also, you can enjoy the nature’s view and scenery around. There is also spots where you can enjoy with family and friends and have a good time while enjoying your surroundings. Very amazing place.
  • Great lookout point to enjoy some breathtaking views of the ocean. If you really want to indulge yourself visit for a sunset. There is food/drinks available and Domes beach is just a short walk away.
  • Located here is the lighthouse that you see from maybe #TheBeachHousGrill. There's #SweetCafe located here for food and drinks and music once open. There's a path that leads down to #domes beach ⛱️ as well. There's seating all around not the cleanest place as most of these spots are not, but make the best of it, there not the worst🤷🏾‍♀️ the ppl here are great! #rinconlighthouse
