“Cabo's "most swimmable" Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Medano beach is Cabo's most swimmable beach, so as you might imagine it is very busy. The sand is clean, the water is clear and the waves are relatively calm. Several hotels and restaurnats are located along the beach and almost all water sports - kayaking, parasailing, jetskiing, SUP, are available.

“The Office”

Great Food, facing the Arch right on the beach. The ONE thing you have to do in Cabo.

“Sights & Sands”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Beautiful beach. And the water is soo warm. It’s a narrow beach that could easily get packed, as with spring break. My bride and I visited mid-June so it was not too crowded. Lots of activities, t-shirts, and other souvenir trinkets being sold. They don’t go into the hotel property areas so they wait for you to pass the line before descending on you. Nice view of Lands’ End too. Lots of places to eat and even saw a couple massage booths. Didn’t feel like swimming so we just walked it for a while. Can’t wait to feel its sand in my toes again!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Great swimming beach, bars right on the Beach. Beach sellers kept outside the sitting area, there if you want it, not disturbed if you don't.
