Create an itinerary including Jobos Beach
Surfers love Jobos Beach, which boasts excellent conditions for catching some waves. While the high, consistent currents make the beach unsuitable for snorkeling or swimming, the waves combined with the shallow depth make the beach a favorite for surfers. Less adventurous visitors can bring a kite along to take advantage of the breeze, or relax on the soft golden sands with a picnic. Since this doesn't count as a public beach, lifeguards don't patrol the area; approach swimming with caution and keep a vigilant eye on younger members of the family. Due to a lack of changing facilities, visitors normally make do with changing behind the area's abundant trees.

  • Jobos beach is very popular so best to go during the week. The rocks and spray from the water are pretty. The boardwalk starts right there. We watched lizzards, birds, colorful fish, and manatees...

  • Very popular beach with all the amenities and next to very nice rock outcrop. Chairs and umbrellas rental available. Very crowded when we were there.

  • A very popular and lively beach on the east end where the water is shallow and still. The crowd is young and vibrant with many locals from the town of Isabela. Jobos becomes quieter and unoccupied heading west where the waves break closer to a much steeper part of the beach.
  • We spent a few very relaxed days at Jobos Beach. The new facilities of the place give a new air to the experience. They have several very good restaurants.
  • Great beach for snorkeling and swimming and perfect location (lots of food and drink options nearby). However, you need to be mindful of the current, it can pull you out a bit. My husband did get stung by a jellyfish while swimming out a little ways, but I think it was just a weird incident because it doesn’t appear to be common thing at this beach. There are plenty of shade spots that make this beach a beautiful spot to relax!
  • Beautiful beach and water, beautiful rock formations along the right side too. Not much for swimming though. It is incredibly rocky and shallow and the current is enough to take down even the strongest swimmer. I personally wouldn't want to spend the day here, but I'm fairly certain there is no such thing as an ugly beach in Puerto Rico.
  • The Jobos beach is amazing!!!! Absolutely kid friendly with the shallows extending out pretty far. It is a hub for beautiful fish and sea life so snorkeling is a must when you visit. We saw tangs, schools of fish, parrot fish, squid, and our highlight was a sting ray with a beautiful fish floating above its back. This is a must visit!
