El Faro Lighthouse Reviews
The lighthouse was nicely painted, it wasn't opened, but we enjoyed the magnificent view it provided. It's highly recommended to visit, relax, have some drinks and enjoy the atmosphere. more »
The Faro Lighthouse is a bit abandoned and needs a bit of up keep. Other than that the views are spectacular. more »
Fun day trip with family or friends. Beautiful views, great vegan restaurants nearby, a fun place for children, and can be a super romantic spot for couples as well. A farmer's market is run on Sundays and it's also a popular spot for antique car shows, surfing contests happen nearby, and much more. Rincón is highly recommended if you ever have a few days in the island and transportation to drive around and explore.
Excellent place for visiting with the family. Love it and will be back.
