“Punta Borinquen” Lighthouse Ruins



Punta Borinquen Lighthouse Ruins, Aguadilla, Puerto Rico

The “Punta Borinquen” Lighthouse” was one of the many lighthouses built by the Spaniards in Puerto Rico.  The all-brick structure was built in 1889 and destroyed beyond repair by a powerful earthquake in 1918.

All that’s left today are two brick walls, the concrete floor and part of the foundation.  However, it remains a favorite among photographers who find inspiration in its open windows, bare brick surfaces and beautiful surroundings.


This is also a secluded area.  So don’t go alone, especially late in the day and with expensive camera gear.
