Noisy, too busy, but one of the few truly swimmable beaches in Cabo. Hate the intrusive Cruise Ships
Therefore expect a peddler every minute and to overpay for food or drink on the beach. Best bet is to go the Taco shop on the street just above the Baja Cantina to get good inexpensive Tacos and some cold beers from the market next door.
The Beach and water itself of Medano Beach was beautiful, however it was very noisy with jet skis and other motorized watercraft. There were lots of peddlers trying to sell you stuff so you could not even walk on the beach without being disturbed. Also the cruise ships were in plain view and a distraction to the lovely surroundings.
Spent a week at RIU Palace on Medano beach. The beach is wide and eventually slopes down into the sea. Water is rough and too cold for my liking but the beach is beautiful to walk. The sand is coarse and can be quite hot so carry a pair of flip flops and sunscreen if you travel in the warm... More
This place is crowded and full of hotels and restaurants. There are vendors everywhere. It is a lot of fun to go though. Do find a restaurant table on the beach, buy that bucket of beer and watch the people. Go into the water for a dip or just wander the shore, even though it is crowded it is fun.... More
Sooooo fun to watch the beach and water activity. Quiet in the mornings, then more people come out, the vendors arrive, the water taxi's start up, the jetski teams arrive, a cruise ship docks.. endless entertainment to watch from a palapa or beach umbrella.
I found Medano to be my new favorite beach. Non stop entertainment to the left of me and a most spectacular view to my right. This blue sky and blue sea provides many activity options as a bonus to a day well spent in the sun, sand, and Sea of Cortes!
It's very busy beach and it's full of life. Water taxi's abound. Generally for the >18yo crowd, visit Mangos on the beach during the day to partake or view interesting "games".
Such an amazing place. So many of the people from our group missed out on seeing this area and it truly is such a site to see. DO NOT MISS IT. Cabo really isn't that large take the time to enjoy all of it and experience the FUN at Medano Beach. We just soaked up the sun, had some lunch... More
You will see it all here, wet T shirt contests and lots of string bikinis, vendors come in flocks and you will say No Gracias all day but it is worth it. You can sit on Casa Doratas chairs in the roped off area as long as you eat and drink they will treat you good. Vendors are not allowed... More
