Jobos Beach is an interesting destination in Puerto Rico because on the one hand, the waters are calm enough for swimming, but there are also waters perfect for surfing as well. In fact, locals who don't want to travel to Rincon use this as their main surfind beach.

Located on the western coast of the island of Puerto Rico, 3.7 miles west-northwest of Isabela, You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying nearby.

Amenities and Ambiance

Jobs is protected by a cove made out of a fossilized sand dune. Although the waters are generally calm, rip currents are something to be aware of. 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, public restrooms aren't available, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.

Since Jobos Beach is found inside a relatively urbanized region, you'll want to plan accordingly.
