Playa Jobos

Beach in Isabela & Around

The wonderfully dramatic crescent of Playa Jobos is protected by a large headland of dead coral to the east, and the surf breaks pretty consistently off this point. The site of the 1989 World Surfing Championships, Jobos is a good place to surf or watch professional athletes doing their wave thing. There is also fine swimming off the eastern beach, where the point protects you from the surf.

The bar-restaurants on the southern side of the cove offer a laid-back après-surf scene, especially on weekends.

What locals refer to as Playa Jobos is actually one long coastline made up of different beaches – Jobos is the biggest one, at the intersection of Rtes 466 and 4466. That’s also the beach where you will find the greatest number of hotels and restaurants.
