The color of the sand is a mix of white and tan, and palm trees line the shore. Although there is easy access to several restaurants, there are no facilities on the beach.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.

You should remember that the region in which Jobos Beach is located is a bustling area, so plan accordingly.
