Lots of activity on this sandy beach. Water taxis, tours to El Arco, wave runner and jet ski rentals, and others. Enjoy your choice of restaurants too. Area designated for swimmers is roped off for safety.

We ate at The Office and they had great food. Not a lot of places to just sit by the water, crowded.

This is a fantastic beach with awesome swimming and great restaurants. Be warned though...if you're bringing a family with young kids just know that during the busy season (spring time) the college crowd is loud, wild and usually involved in a lap dance/wet t-shirt contest of some sort. Love this beach!

Walked down from Riu Santa Fe. Lovely walk, great service on the beach, and the swimming beach is simply marv!

Great view from the beach lounge chairs of the Arch as well as all the the cruise ships as they glide in usually over night. We like to migrate from the beach restaurants to waters edge, a 25 foot migration at most.

We went to Medano Beach on a Sunday, so the crowds got quite large by the afternoon. Lots of vendors, beach was nice. Lots of activities to do if you want to. Was a fun outing.

Medano beach is the hub of beach activity with jet ski rentals, parasailing, food, drinks and swimming. There are a few nice places to eat and drink and relax on the beach and if you want to do watersports this is where you should go. Do a timeshare tour at your hotel or buy and activity downtown to avoid full... More

Plenty of activities with parasailing, boat rides, fishing or just swimming in the ocean. Certain parts are designated for swimming due to the tides and water being rough. The vendors on the beach are annoying. The sand isn't fine and almost gravel like in certain spots. The beach was mostly clean, but the hotels in the area were hit or... More

Medano Beach. One of the few (relatively) "calm" beaches in Cabo San Lucas where you can splash around in the water without fears of huge waves or rip currents. You COULD stake out a spot on the sand and sit there all day while guarding your blanket ... or you could do what we do every time: Sit under an... More
