One of the most consistent surf spots in Rincon area. Peaceful, tropical vibe with good people watching. There's a nice view of Domes from the lighthouse.

This is not a good swimming beach...but we had a great time sitting out and watching all the surfers...there must have been 40 in the water! No vendors there so you need to bring everything you want.

Domes was a almost unknown beach to the none surfers just a few years ago. Now many come to see the surfers practiciing there and for peace and quiet areas to walk alone on the beach. Great place to explore but be aware if the surf is strong there are strong currents toward the left side looking at the ocean.... More

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
