Nice beach, lots of people and vendors and action. Not rocky for swimming. Lots going on here, as all the hotels are lined up on this beach. Very close to the arch as well. Catch a open bottom boat across to check out the arch

The beach area with all it's shopping, restaurants, bars and water activities was amazing. We had a late lunch at The Office and then went to the "swing bar" 3 spots over for cocktails and entertainment. I think it is actually called Baja Club or something similar. Had one of the best days there.

The beach is super clean like the area around our hotel. Some poor guy even rakes the sand each morning by hand to keep it all leveled out. It's not a white sand but more of a tan color. Not easy to walk on but plenty of people do it anyway. It's cool to see the cruise ships anchored there.

The hotel roped off a section for us and we had a server. Typically the locals hit you up selling all kind of touristy stuff from hat to t-shirts, jewelry and more. We had great weather in january compared to Seattle so we were happy to just soak up some sun and relax.

Great place to lay on the beach, swim or enjoy the beach side bars and restaurants. Can catch water taxis, rent seadoos or paddleboards or get a massage

Medano beach is the center of the Cabo beach-party scene. Ceratinly worth visiting once, but you're better off at one of the resorts just out of town if you're looking for a view and some serenity. There are just too many jet skis and peddlers here to enjoy the beach and view of El Arco . . .

Nice beach with a lot of hotels. The sand isn't soft, but not as bad as people have stated. too many vendors though, but you just roll with it.

The beach is beautiful but the constant pushing by vendors trying to sell their items was wearing on the soul and spoiled the peace of getting away and enjoying the beauty.
