What a great time! The water can be pretty choppy at times, but the beach is great! We had an amazing man looking after us, so if you want someone to bring you Cervasas, Food, get you better deals on excursions, etc - you want to ask for Marco! He's so amazing, and really made our stay feel like it... More

and the only swimmable beach within walking distance of DT Cabo. There are lots of beach vendors but they weren't pushy. Water was too cool for me at this time but lots of folks took the plunge.

This is one of the best beaches in Cabo. Good water, lots of people watching and many bars and restaurants. This is the place for water sports or just relaxing.

Ugh. If I was still in college, this would probably be my go-to place. Too many people, vendors and noise. Fun if you're on spring break.

Medano Beach has several bars and restaurants as well as beach goers. This is a huge attraction for local vendors to relentlessly approach tourists to sell their wares. Be prepared to say "no gracias" over and over.

Medano Beach is a nice beach to walk on but not a great swimming beach. If you walk down towards the marina you could swim. Don't like the horses on the beach.....be careful where you walk.

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.
