Rincon is well known as a surfing destination after rising to international regognition through the 1968 World SUrf Championship which was held at Domes Beach. Generally regarded as one of the best surf spots across the globe, Rincón draws surfers from around the world and is the center of the island’s surf scene.
Dubbed the “Caribbean’s Hawaii,” winter waves here can approach 25–30 feet (6.7m) in height, sometimes equaling the force of the surf on Oahu’s north shore. The best time to surf is from November through March, but summer storms can also kick up the surf during the late summer.
Numerous beaches provide surfers of all skill levels with plenty of wave-riding opportunities:
