Great beach this year, The water clear and warm & was great for swimming or just floating around this year. They control the sales folks well on the beach. Yummy fresh mango on a stick a must eat here. Food was great too!

We ate at the Office and then walked the beach. Lots of people trying to sell you things while you eat but that is just part of the character of the area.

Nice beach with vendors and services available. Chairs and umbrellas available for rent. You can also rent jet skis and catch tours to the arch or water taxis to the marina form here. You will be approached by the beach vendors..

It's not powder sand, so beware. There are LOTS of vendors, but acknowledge them and say 'no gracias' and they leave you alone, but you're saying it 2 times a minute. The sea is swimmable, with a moderate drop off.

This is a beautiful beach and is one of the few swimmable beaches in Cabo. Everything you'd want in nearby: food, drinks, water sports, and massages. Yes, it's quite busy and there are people trying to sell things.

The only swimmable beach and the sand is really nice. We took long walks every day and the only annoying thing is all the hawkers that are there. Good news is that they are not aggressive just annoying.

It's Mexico style "spring break" but without all of the crazy college kids yet! Fun to visit, drink, eat and people watch but a little too crowded for me. But if you like A LOT of action and hawkers selling junk, it's a fun place to be. Can't imagine what late night is like when all the drunks roll out... More

Medano beach is a must stop. We visit Cabo every couple of months and always make a stop at Medano beach. Tabasco's is one of our favorite spots. It is a spot for two for one beverages every day all day.
