Love the fact that you can get a beer and food within minutes anywhere on the beach. If you can stand the constant vendors asking for your business, then it is a great place to sunbath and swim.

Been here a few times now and it is a most excellent place if you're 18-30 for sure. If you're in your 50's or 60's you might want to head else where. The Mango deck has some good specials at times but watch your stuff if sitting on a table above the beach, it tends to grow legs and walk... More

The beach itself is really a party beach. The vendors are numerous and will drive you crazy, wear sunglasses and try not to make eye contact. The sand is hot, the water is rough and the surf is dangerous for little kids. The good part is the amazing clear water, the view of the town and the arches, the availability... More

While the scenery is amazing, the experience is tarnished by non stop vendors. I know everyone must make a living, but this is too much. It goes on even at night. I tried to take in the sights and sounds of the beach in a peaceful moment on a reclining chair, and as I closed my eyes for just a... More

So many great things to see. The swimming is wonderful, the restaurants have delicious food, and the views of Land's End is great. There is no shortage of things to do and see from Medano Beach. The vendors can get a little annoying if you're not in the mood to shop. Either tell them you don't have any money and... More

Excellent time at Medano Beach, daughter went on jet ski's and really enjoyed her time. Also went swimming, water was so nice as we couldn't go swimming in ocean at Playa Grande due to the big waves and undercurrent. Also bought some nice jewelry on beach

We had a great time at this beach! The ocean was a perfect for swimming in, fun waves and fun people. There a lots of beach bars and lots of vendors. Lot's of activities to do, wave runners, glass bottoms boats, parasailing, etc. It's kept clean and I wish I were there right now!

If you want to do parasailing,jet skies, and other water activities. This is the beach for you because everything is here. There are several companies here and we went with Baja's watersports because the boats and equipment looked newer. The prices were excellent too. There are restaurants and many locals selling their wares on the beach. The taxis drop you... More

This beach was perfect for swimming. We were at the far end closest to the jetty. Maria Bonita has umbrellas & lounge chairs for $15 for the day. If you bring a snorkel you can see a lot of fish around the jetty.
