Visit this elegant working lighthouse with mesmerizing 360 degree views of Caribbean waters, 200 feet tall limestone cliffs, natural bridges, the most beautiful beach cove in Puerto Rico, green lush dry tropical flora, a wildlife refuge, salt flats and mountains. No other place in Puerto Rico offers such views with unsurpassed beauty.
El Faro Los Morrillos was built in 1882 by the Spanish and ever since it has been a guide for ships to navigate safely through the Mona Passage.
In 2002 a three million dollar restoration was initiated, and in 2007 it was re-opened to the public. The lighthouse is painted in the original historical colors of gray and white trim.
As you head outside, be prepared to be amazed by the views. Although Faro Los Morrillos is the main attraction, the magnificent views of limestone cliffs with reddish tones and turquoise Caribbean waters are an attraction on their own. Bring plenty of water so you can spend some time admiring the views.
Caution: Please don’t get near the edge, there are no guard rails, so keep your children with you at ALL times.
