Busy beach

Very busy location, loud and many locals selling their items. May become a bit overwhelming. Good people watching location, totally tourist destination and attraction.

We went in January (not during spring break) and the beach was pretty busy. It's a beautiful beach with lots of restaurants at hotels and tons to do - jet skiing, boat tours, kayaking, paras ailing, etc. We took a boat tour to the arch and lovers/divorce beach which was great! It's best to walk down the beach to either... More

We stayed at PB Blanco on Medano Beach. It was great because you can swim in the water. The other side of Cabo is the Pacific Ocean and you are not allowed to swim because of the currents. Highly recommend medano Beach.

Fun beach to walk... Really clean, nice sand, good views, and a large contingent of entrepreneurs selling about anything you can imagine.

We walked on and around Medano Beach a few times during our recent visit to Los Cabos. We were not impressed. The whole area was very crowded and locals were walking all around the beach trying to sell you everything from cigars to T-shirts to cheap jewelry. The sand is very difficult to walk on. We got here by taking... More

Beautiful view but the vendors bother you every 2 minutes to sell you their items or weed or blow. No gracias will be your catch phrase for the day.

Night or day this is one outstanding beach location. Not a gentle sloping beach so beware. Many great places to enjoy sunrise to sunset or night skyline. We have enjoyed 2 trips when the moon was full, so romantic. Beach vendors are assertive but well mannered. Don't be intimidated by resort private beach walk in and have lunch at Vila... More

The thing about Medano Beach that most concerned me before going there was whether or not it was safe to swim there. Others noted that the closer one gets to the Marina, the safer it is. Although we only swam within several hundred yards of the Marina, there were no noticeable currents. People mentioned that the sea floor drops quickly.... More

You can't beat the beauty of this bay and the beach has so much fun to do along the beach. There are open air restaurants on the sand, jet skis to rent, glass bottom boatrides, kayaks, parasails, massages ($25 an hour while you listen to the waves)paddle boards, horseback riding...the fun doesn't stop! If you happen to be in Cabo... More
