Males 60-70 mm, females 80-90 mm. The dorsum is granular in texture, and the dorsal coloration has a background of various shades of brown with irregular darker patches. The species has parotoid glands posterior to the eyes, but they are not very distinct. The belly is whitish to cream. The throat region of males is greenish yellow in the reproductive season.

Juveniles of Bufo marinus are similar in general form and color to B. granulosus, but B. marinus has distinct parotoid glands behind the eyes, whereas the parotoid glands of B. granulosus are smaller and difficult to see in juveniles.
