Rincón is a town on Puerto Rico’s west coast, known for its beaches. Punta Higüero Lighthouse overlooks Domes Beach, with its pounding surf. Central Sandy Beach is lively. Steps Beach is the site of Tres Palmas Marine Reserve, home to parrotfish and hawksbill turtles. South along the coast are quiet Caribbean beaches like Córcega. Offshore, coral reefs surround tiny Desecheo Island.

Nicknamed as “The Town of Beautiful Sunsets,” Rincón is for anyone who loves the beach life. If you’re a surfing enthusiast or not, you should come here at least once in your lifetime.
