Best beach in hotel zone. Safe for swimming and playing in sea. Beautiful sand, clean environment. Great area for interacting with our visitors, locals, and "adventure sales teams".

Atmosphere is awesome. Anything from quiet to loud parties. The beach is very, very clean. People are so friendly. Any water activity you want is available here.

We stayed at the Casa Dorado right on Medano Beach. If you are looking for a active, loud, entertaining beach, this is the beach for you. You've got water sports, vendors, The Office, Mango Deck, people watching and ocean swimming. My family and I loved this beach!

The beach is beautiful, but the waters are very rough. Unsafe for swimming. Violent waters make you and your kids wanna hit the pool instead.

Might be the most beautiful view bad one of the few swim able beaches but the amount of vendors is a complete turnoff

The most popular beach. Lots of vendors around. The boats come really close to the beach -- we almost got hit twice. So, just watch out for your safety.

On the beach dining and lots of fun and fantastic food and service. Have great Mexican show a couple of times a week. A must visit when in Cabo

Just came back from Cabo. Our resort opened onto this beach. Beautiful pink-tan (coarse) sand and gorgeous blue water. There is a very dangerous undertow though (as evidenced by the red flags the resorts put up at the entrances to the beach). Once you get into the water (past where the waves break) you're fine... but getting IN and getting... More

We stayed at the Hacienda Beach Club and Residences and loved Medano Beach. The water was calm 5 out of 7 days, the other two days was choppy, but our 9 and 10 year old sons could still hang in the water with no issues. Can't wait to get back!!! Oh, and the beach vendors are harmless and very nice,... More

It may be the most swimmable but it is still rough. The sand is very course. I got a rash from sitting in the sand. Not my fav.
