This is a clean large beach to walk two to three miles in the sand surrounded by clear water from the Sea of Cortez on one side and great food , bar scene and food on the other. Much variety.

Love this area, you can find just about anything at Medano Beach. The only negative is you get attacked by people selling stuff, but that is a little fun too.

It was OK but I found a lot of other nicer beaches in Cabo. I preferred the locals beaches like Chileno and Santa Maria.

This is a fun beach with many activities offered. Gorgeous views in all directions. The water was too cold for swimming, around 70 degrees in February. Luckily the heated hotel pool is nearby.

The beach was gorgeous and water was nice and clean. There were lots of people trying to sell different items which grew tiring but this was easily overlooked with the beauty of the city. Can't wait to return again!

If you like the ocean and want to spend time in Cabo you need to stay at Madeno Beach, Villa Group of hotels to be exact. Very safe as long as you respect the water.

Beautiful views from the beach of The Arches with nice golden sand but there are too many vendors on the beach -- selling boat tours, souvenirs etc so some parts are a bit crowded

I love the speech. It is right off the marina so what do you were staying on the beach or off and it's easy access to get there. The hotels and bars on the beach are a lot of fun. Lots of activity and lots of vendors but the funders are very polite and I'll zoo have to do is... More

But bear in mind that although you can swim on the beach - you won't be alone. This is the place to go for all the hustle and bustle of Cabo and for rental of all the water sports you could desire...
