A very popular beach among surfers (and boogie-boarders alike) is Domes Beach, which owes its name to the nearby hemispherical facility, very visible from the beach. Once the designated land for this nuclear reactor built in the 1960s by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, it is now a main surfer morning attraction. Due to moderate current, some rocks and sea urchins it is probably not the best place for swimming or snorkeling. If you’re into whatever kind of activity related to good surf though, this one is definitely the beach for you. There are no bathrooms or other facilties on the beach, but the lighthouse and its bar are within walking distance, contributing to creating an even more interesting environment. Just bring your bug spray, some drinks and snacks and you’ll have fun.
Domes Beach can be reached from the Rincon town center in about 10 minutes by car. Take PR-115 and, at first intersection, take PR-413 towards north. You’ll get to the famous Rincon Lighthouse. Drive past it, leaving it at your left side and follow the road for a few hundred ft; you’ll get to a parking lot, where you can leave your car. Beach will be on your left.
