Great beach, close to the Marina, too many vendors selling. We were constantly approached to buy something. When you did buy the people were very nice and courteous, just too many of them?

We love Medano Beach for it's colorful and lively activity. There are always lots of people, fun things to purchase and water activities for the whole family.

This is, by far, the best beach for swimming and water sports in Cabo San Lucas. Unfortunately you must fend off the peddlers and vendors off every 5-10 minutes.

Close to the Marina and downtown area, easily reached via a short walk. Sand is nice yet water clarity is not so good.

Unless your inside the private confines of your hotel area beach the vendors follow you around relentlessly trying to sell you silver and cigars and boat trips. Its nice to have the beach swimming option but not sure its worth it.

A great place to swim in the ocean or kayak. It is fun to stroll up and down to check out the different resorts and people watch. The waves are gentle and the water a beautiful blue. It is a fun place for singles and families to hang out.

This is the public beach so when the cruise ships are in it is very crowded but you can have alot of fun here. I would like to see them limit the number of vendors allowed because everytime you turn around someone else is trying to sell ou the same stuff.

Stayed at the Villa Palmar on Medano Beach. Good location for walking to Medano Beach bars. One had live music. One had swinging bar stools. Relaxed atmosphere - just remember its a public beach so lot's of locals as well. VERY nice restaurant - EDITH's - great steaks and seafood. 1/2 block off beach.

We go to Pueblo Bonito's Rose' resort pool area whenever we are in Cabo - it was the first PB resort we stayed at which lead to becoming Montecristo owners. We love the Rose' so always visit when we are in Cabo. We don't do the beach much but it's fun to see all the activity. Lots of young people... More
