This is not a quiet beach for gazing into each other's eyes or sleeping or doing much of anything except being loud, drunk, and raucous. Hawkers trying to sell you hats, cigars, shawls, sunglasses, earring, food, boat tours, timeshare appointments (don't do it) and more....More

This is the best beach in Cabo. Beautiful views, swimmable water, and central location to all the best restaurants with easy access to the marina area.

The experience is diminished by all the venders passing by every two seconds. We would still go back.

Miles of white sandy beach right next to the Cabo Harbor. Lots to do - although our favorite activity is just a long walk. End to end will take over two hours. Or grab a water taxi and go to the Arch and then snorkel,...More

Great swimming area in roped off areas to keep you away from the water craft. Generally calm water in front of Cabo Villas, rougher and less swimmable the further north you go. Lots of vendors selling their wares all up and down the beach and...More

If you're not a fan of crowds, loud bumping music, and headaches, then don't waste your time here. I don't think I would have enjoyed it even back in my partying college days. There's not room for that many people, so you are shoulder to...More

How far is Medano Beach from the Marina?

Response from FlatlanderUS | Reviewed this property |
Depends on which side of the Marina... The most enjoyable way to get there is by water taxi. If you are on the west side of the marina it is quite a long walk (20-30 min). If you are on the east side, it is 5-10 min... More

Last year I visited this beach as my friends were staying at the Dorado resort, but I recall having to go through a locked gate. Are outsiders able to access the beach?

Response from Jackie L | Reviewed this property |
every beach is open to the public. Each has a roped off area specifically for guests but they are diligent in making sure there is no public access to the grounds or pool.

I have never seen lockers there. We usually ask people nearby to watch our stuff & offer to do the same for them.
