Domes Beach

Domes Beach
February 27th, 2015

In Rincon, just about everyone has heard of Domes Beach. The name is literally from the dome of an old nuclear plant in the area. You don’t have to worry about Chernobyl problems or radiation leaks, though. It’s pretty safe here. In fact, it’s going to become a Science Center and Museum, and that’s another reason why a visit to Domes Beach is a must.

Surf’s Up

But the name of the beach isn’t really important. For surfers, its reputation as a world class surf beach is its most important feature. The waves are simply terrific here, there’s no doubt about that. The superb surfing conditions bring out all the enthusiastic surfers in the area, and competitions are held here all the time.

For those who just want to watch, there are spots in the shade along the beach where you can hang out. But you’ll need to bring your own stuff with you such as your lotion, towels, chairs, and snacks. There aren’t any convenient facilities there.

But there are lots of nice private spots. It’s also surprisingly peaceful and quiet, especially on the side of the lighthouse. It’s a nice place for a walk, especially to the lighthouse. The beauty of the beach is undeniable, and the beauty of the surroundings make it seem like it’s your own private Eden.

If you’re from Europe or the US and you’re tired of seeing Westerners, then Domes Beach is also a pleasant surprise. That’s because it’s mostly popular with locals.

But unfortunately, it’s not really a good area for beginner or non-expert swimmers. The current can be dangerously strong, and only experienced swimmers can fight against the current. What’s more, the jagged reefs and rocks can be very painful.

Getting There

It’s not hard to find Domes Beach in Rincon. Just go past Calypso Bar in Marias and past the El Fero Lighthouse until you reach the old nuclear plant. Just park on the left side, and then a short 5-minute walk gets you to the beach.

You may just want to go there early though. Even on weekdays the place is crowded, so you shouldn’t expect a nice secluded beach where you can meditate or something. On weekends, the Domes Beach is absolutely packed. That’s the downside of a famous surfing beach where there are lots of surfers around.

Curiously, in the summer it isn’t all that crowded. Maybe that’s because the waves aren’t great during this time but that may mean that you can swim more safely. In the winter, you can also engage in some whale-watching, but you should use a nice camera so you can take great pictures.

If you’re a surfer, a visit to Domes Beach is a must. It’s also a great idea if you like watching people having fun surfing, or you just like to relax. You can catch some sun and just soak in the fun atmosphere.
