water was freezing cold never saw anything like that but it was welcomed because it was blazing hot. walk with enough cash because you need the beach chair and umbrella its wise to bring your own but if you dont have it then rent. food right there very expensive again bring your own its way cheaper

They try to make money on everything here. You can't even relax... Also the current is very strong and kids couldn't swim there. For some reason it also wasn't that warm.

My hubby and I spent a lot if time at this beach. If you want chairs and umbrellas pay the guys 20bucks for the day. I recommend bringing your own beers and snacks. I gave the guy a 20 for a bucket of beers he came back 30 minutes later after he ran down to the corner store paid 5... More

I picked our location based on this was one of the few, if any places to swim. In Late Aug when the temp is around 90 the water feels fabulous. It was great for swimming. The water was clear and the blue green water was wonderful place with the Marina nearby and the rocks of the arch it was beautiful.

Total scene on Medano beach , especially in front of this huge bar called Mango. It's a big party on the beach. Some hotels have private areas with chairs for guests. The beach is narrow and therefore crowded. Many vendors walking in the beach trying to sell items of jewelry, tshirts and all items actually We preferred the pool but... More

Could not relax. Someone was trying to sell you something constantly. Did not feel like you can lay out a towel and enjoy as all of the beach establishments had areas roped off.

We were shuttled in from the cruise ship to the main marina and decided to take a water taxi to Medano Beach. The beach is fine, nice sand and a few places to get a drink. Too many peddlers always in your face. The real problem is the water taxi will not come back to pick you up and take... More

Lot of people bars restaurants and fun there. Nevertheless, the seaside is beautiful and the water is so clean. Can't wait to swim and dive there again

The beach is nice and kept clean. The only thing I found annoying was peddlers walking by every 5 minutes trying to sell something. This went on nonstop during our 2 1/2 hour beach visit. The peddlers don't even know who they've tried selling to (or don't care) and keep coming back time and time again. Save yourself the hassle... More

Experienced swimmers or flotation device recommended. Otherwise a clean and beautiful beach with a nice view of land's end.
