The views from this place are breathtaking! No matter where you "park yourself", it is one beautiful view after another! And if you get to catch a glimpse of the sunset, even better! When we were there, a bride and groom were having their pictures taken there. Great idea!!!!

Great for you to go and relax with your sweetheart, and watch the sun go down, or just looking at the waves and the cliffs!

Close up view of Domes beach and cliffs are incredible. A great stop when in Rincon to take a break sun and shade. Lovely

If you are near Rincon, you should go to the lighthouse! Though you can't go inside, there is a nice park (with restrooms) and the view is amazing.

Great stop on your way to the beach! Beautiful place to take a walk. Enjoy the views. Lots of vendors if you want to pick up souvineers or trinkets. Grounds are pristine.

Lovely destination, the views from the walking decks are amazing and the park like atmosphere was a nice surprise. We thoroughly enjoyed the artisans in the parking area and bought several hand crafted items.

We only came here for the sunset but there was lots of parking and lots of points of view the sunset. Check out my photos!
