Puerto Rico has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Nearly 300 beaches to chose from! There’s something for everyone – turquoise water and palm tree-lined lagoons for swimming and sunbathing; coral reefs for snorkeling and scuba diving; big waves for surfing; wild beaches and “party beaches”; beaches with restaurants and food trucks and secret beaches that are accessible only through a hike in the jungle.
In our 2 weeks in Puerto Rico, I visited over a dozen different beaches and every time I discovered a new beach, it would quickly become my new favorite. That is until I visited another beach the day after or that same day 🙂 Today on the blog, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite beaches in Puerto Rico. Starting with…
– Playa Jobos Beach Guide –
What is it? A beautiful beach in the town of Isabela. A big volcanic rock formation to the right of the beach has waves crashing into it creating a dramatic effect. The lagoon protected by the rocks is calm and good for swimming and sunbathing.
How to get there? Located in the Northwest of Puerto Rico, it’s about a 2-hour drive from San Juan; ~30-minute drive from Aguadilla
Good for? Swimming and relaxing on the beach. Photos – you can climb the rocks where powerful waves are crashing into them for a stunning backdrop. If you climb rocks, be careful and wear slippers as they are quite sharp.
Food Options? We did not have a chance to eat there but there are a number of restaurants walking distance from the beach.
How crowded? As one of the main beaches in Isabela, it’s pretty popular. We were there on a Tuesday and the beach was crowded.
– What to Wear at Jobos Beach-
To climb the rocks and catch some waves, I went with a one-piece swimsuit from Andie Swim in a classic Navy color. Look for a combination of nylon and spandex for a sporty and stretchy fit that fits in all the right places. I love one-piece suits just for that reason – they hold everything in for a seamless, flattering look for all body types. Go with a plunging neck to add some drama and show off more skin. Throw on a vintage baseball cap to finish off the look.
