Year Established: 1892
Description:

Sitting atop a small promontory in the southeastern municipality of Maunabo, the Punta Tuna Lighthouse has been alerting mariners of their proximity to the coast since it was first lit back in 1892.

Similar in shape and form to other such structures found around Puerto Rico, its original third order Fresnel lens could project light some eighteen nautical miles away from the island. Listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places since 1981, it is now lighted by a solar panel powered lamp.

Currently managed by the municipality of Maunabo, the lighthouse park offers great views to Playa Los Bohíos to the west and the beautiful secluded Playa Larga to the east. Also known as Los Pinos or Playa Punta Tuna, Playa Larga is perfect for solitary types, long walks, and sunbathers looking for a more tranquil spot.
