Best Place to Watch the Sunset in Rincón

The Beach House

The Beach House is set on top of a steep hill directly over Maria’s beach. They have happy hour with live music. There is plenty of seating outside and they have Adirondack chairs set up facing the ocean for a spectacular view! The Beach House’s view is unmatched and one of the best places to watch the sunset in Rincón.

Villa Cofresí

Come for the piratas, stay for the sunset! Villa Cofresí’s coconut drinks are famous and strong! Hang out along the rail while you listen to the waves hit the deck and sip on your giant coconut rum drink.

Ola Sunset Cafe

The views are incredible as are the freshly made mojitos! Ola Sunset Cafe is next to the lighthouse and overlooking Domes beach. You can watch surfers get their last waves while watching the sunset on top of the cliff. Ola Sunset Cafe makes all their drinks fresh and I highly recommend the parcha (passionfruit) mojito!

Steps Beach

At sunset, steps beach is extremely tranquil and peaceful. You may want to bring a blanket with you to sit on or take a nice little beach walk while you look for beach glass on the shore. This is one of my favorite places to watch the sunset in Rincón and also one of my favorite beaches during the day.

El Bohio

OK so maybe not the best place to watch the sunset in Rincón but… my ultimate favorite happy hour bar. You can easily run down to Maria’s beach quickly to watch the sunset or watch the sky change from blue to pretty pinks and yellows from a bar stool at El Bohio.

All the drinks are amazing. Choose from a rum punch, pina colada, margarita, watermelon cooler – you name it all their drinks are made with fresh juices!

El Nuevo Encuentro

AKA Mountain Bar. Our friends who live down in Rincón for the winter just introduced us to El Nuevo Encuentro/Mountain Bar this past January and it’s definitely worth noting. Up into the mountains you’ll wonder where the heck you are going but it’s worth the view and cheap drinks once you get there. Plus there’s a juke box and pool table.


You may not see the sun slip under the horizon at Tamboo in the winter but you can still watch the pretty sunset skies from the top deck of Tamboo. They also have my favorite piña colada in Rincón and a great surtido (fried Puerto Rican appetizer sampler) to share with friends!

Tamboo is on one of my favorite beaches in Rincón. Click here to read about the best beaches in Rincón!
