Medano Beach is the perfect place to see/stay/visit while in Cabo (in our opinion)! Gorgeous views, great restaurants, cold beer, water activities - lots of fun!

Best pure swimming beach in Cabo, safe for all kinds of swimmers from children to grown ups , the small surf and steep bank can be for some a cause of concern . Loads of activity for everyone from jet skies to wake boarding to paddle boards all for rent and small boats to take you to the arch and... More

Really enjoyed the morning walks on Medano Beach. You will see an assortment of restaurants, hotels, and watering holes you can select from for a cold drink(s) later in the day. We enjoyed 75 degree mornings which turned to 80 plus by 9 am. Also, by mid-day the beach fills with sun worshipers and hotel guests. For the most part... More

From a scenic perspective, this beach deserves a 4+, but the coarse sand with occasional rocks and the never ending barrage of beach vendors hawking everything from jewelry to cigars to henna tattoos is somewhat annoying. Don't get me wrong, it's not all bad. The water is a gorgeous turquoise color and almost always 80 something and was pleasantly uncrowded... More

The entire beach area is a wonderful layout of hotels/timeshares, restaurants, bars and water sports. During the walk you can end up at the marina, stop at bars that have 2 for 1 drinks-wet T shirt contests-many more group activities, activities from body surfing to water sports. The entire length of the beach has things to do for everyone. Evenings... More

Because of deep water off the coast, the beaches to the West of the Arches have dangerous undertow and swells. Medano Beach to the East of the Marine is where swimming and water sports are popular. Lot of fun restaurants on the sand.Problem is the amount of street vendors pestering you. It is like swatting flies.
