The 90-foot El Faro is a working lighthouse, and the major landmark
on the Rincon coast.
It sits in the middle of Rincon's surfing beach strip, and
has Domes Beach on the right and Maria's Beach on the left.
After being destroyed by a tidal wave four years
1918, El Faro was rebuilt four year later, and today includes a lovely little park, gift shop, fast food restaurant,
picnic area, benches, and a small maritime museum.
Today the park is popular as a gathering spot, and for watching
sunsets, and, in the winter, for watching dolphins and whales.
