Relaxing listening to water and watching everything going on. Sipping on a drink laying on beach reading a great book. What more can you ask for.

Nice beach but the water isn't the warmest in February. The view of the Arch is incredible. There are vendors right outside of the hotel areas but we don't mind bartering with them.

If you are looking for a wonderful peaceful beach with soft sand and clean warm water, don't pick Medano Beach. If you enjoy loud music, hundreds of vendors and drunken tourists then this is the place to be.

Great beach - very "spring break" like. Younger crowd with more partying. Lots of folks selling things you don't need. Definitely pick up a paddle board and try it.

Lupe - His Tamales and Burritos - the best! I like the action and views and always make a view day trips there while I am on vacation.

There are really two parts to this beach. One side is full of restaurants and beach clubs. Many have loud music & drinking games. There are also many vendors trying to sell their tourist trinkets. You can catch a water taxi out to the Arch, or rent paddleboards, etc. The other side is a bit more relaxed. You can bring... More

Think Panama City with carnival vendors. Crowded beach, not much swimming space because of all the water traffic (water taxi, jetski, boats). Lots of peddlers. Very American fare with Hard Rock/Hooters environment. Lovers Beach is more laid back.

The swimming is spectacular and the people watching is absolutely the best. We have been enjoying this beach and Cabo San Lucas since the early 90s and it is definitely our oasis away from home. Only negative is when there are more than 3 cruise ships in the bay but for the most part this is rare.
