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

Nice beach with plenty of good food and activities! You could spent 2+ days doing the activities on this beach. Very easy access from many hotels!

Beautiful views and excellent sand beach. There are resorts all along the beach and dozens of bars, so it's a busy place. The view is spectacular and the water great for swimming--as always, be careful!

Beautiful early in the morning. But then the bay is filled with waverunners, kayaks, paddleboards, cruise ships, parasailers and all kinds of new water pressure rides... Loud!

I like that one can walk on this part of the beach and it's not as slanted as the other direction past the Rui. Good people watching and wading and water temperature and fairly safe to swim if you know how to swim in the ocean. You can chose any of the water sports here but the vendors will drive... More

Good location for walking to town or swimming. Fun to watch the people. Crowded with college kids and beer during March though.

The swimming here is good, the water clear. the sand clean and wide. We could have done without so many water craft parked at the edge of the water and the incessant urgings of their owners and other wanna-be entrepreneurs.

This is obvioulsy one of the best beaches around Cabo, so it gets very crowded in the afternoon. Go early if you want to get a lounge chair under an umbrella. You can use one for free if you order your food and drinks from the associated nearby restaurant. Waiters come around to take your order. The front row of... More
