Gorgeous beach, clean water and great surf spot when waves are up. Super little restaurant/empanadilla/t-shirt shack is a must visit. Was a 5 star But packs of disrespectful Pickleball players play aggressive ball right on beach in front of anybody they feel like, which spoils the ambiance and instead of waves, you'll hear pickleball pinging for hours. Can't see the ocean for the rude players who also block the ocean view.

Beautiful beach. Has a place to go surfing and another where the water is calm, for family. There is a huge rock formation that has Indian carvings and a spectacular view of the ocean. Plenty of places to go eat. This is truly a beautiful beach. It’s a must see!!!

Beautiful beach. Great sunset. Parking may be difficult but worth it. Watch out for the riptides. I wasn’t paying attention. Floating on my back & daydreaming. Realized I was far out and took a while to get back. A lifeguard, Julie, met me as I got close in. She said she was keeping an eye on me. Thanks Julie!! The water is dangerous. The views are great

Jobos beach is as beautiful and alluring as it is dangerous. It is absolutely deadly, at least in winter, and if not for a courageous surfer girl, my life and my 10 YO son’s life would have ended last Wednesday, there.

I am attaching a picture that is posted obscurely by Puerto Rico that accurately and perfectly depicts how and why Jobos is literally a toilet bowl of death for anyone not on a stick (board). I overlayed a red line that shows the seemingly easy path that me and Ryan took.

When we went it was sunny and relatively calm. The water is perfect and very calm where we went in. We were fine up to and past our waists when we made the fateful decision to swim for the sandbar in the middle where the waves were finishing (3’ deep). We wanted to body surf some white wash and it was only 30 feet from us and we were both strong swimmers and it was, as I said, totally calm where we were. We could always turn back. Right? It took maybe two minutes for me to realize what a horrible mistake I had made. The minute you step off to swim the undercurrent catches you in a raging hidden river that swirls anything in it towards the rocks and then out to sea beyond the point. 30 feet might have well been 30 miles. But just as panic set in, a girl, an angel, ended her ride about 20 feet from me and I knew she was my only shot. I screamed for help without shame waving my arms furiously. She saw my terror-filled eyes and she came to us.

By the time we grabbed the board we were all the way out at the point. I didn’t know that at the time but my friend from the shore told me this after the fact. He said it was harrowing to watch. Wave after wave pummeled us and I anchored the stern of the board making sure that whatever came that board would not flip. I begged my boy on the front to hold on for his life and to wrap his arm in the girls leash. She held him tight. (I never even got her name) Every wave I came out of the wash and looked for my son. He was there again and again and again. Until at last two other angels found us and towed us to shallow ground.

I have never been so scared for anything as I was for my son’s life that day that was almost taken from me and the world. It was on our way out that I saw this sign. I could not believe that any beach that dangerous would not have life guards ready to go or at least a warning, like that sign, there for everyone to see but Jobos is such a beach. It is literally a death trap. Ignore this post if you like but read it please and share it. It is not an exaggeration and I am not someone unfamiliar in the waves. I am 53 years old but fit and raised surfing the wages of Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach. I know rips and currents and waves and I can swim like a fish and Jobos is not to be challenged. Surf it but don’t swim there at least not beyond your waist.

I went out to snorkel and was almost immediately caught in the rip tide. I was being pulled out to sea. It was very frightening. A local man, Hexter, came to rescue me, on a boogie board. Thank god. This happened on Christmas Day. Heater is an angel.

Nice beach with clear water and coconut palm trees. Fun intimate vibe with mostly locals from all around the island or Latinos from the mainland. A few bars on the beach. Beach umbrella rentals. People playing music with speakers and swimmers singing along. Lots of people drinking in the water relaxing. Plenty of families. A few snorkelers. A vendor selling helado. Calm water protected by rocks on right side but don’t go too far out where surfers are as current is strong and can be dangerous.

This is a one of the many beautiful beaches located on the north. It gets very crowded specially on summer months. Tides can be a little rough so always pay attention. Parking is 10$ but if you go early you can park inthe street for free. There's a nice boardwalk if you feel like having a walk or you can rent a bike.

Jobos Beach is a nice beach in Aguadilla, where there's rock formations you can take photos to get the horizon view, depending on the time you visited it can be rough wave or calm water. There's a part where you can snorkel near sand bar.

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. It has shade from palm trees. Good swimming beach for children .
