This beach is the main beach in Cabo San Lucas. Many hotels,bars , and restaurants along beach. Lots of people hanging out . You can rent just about anything along this stretch and will be hounded to do so. You can also catch water taxis to Archs and lovers beach. Many rope off section where jet skis and water taxis land and depart. There are vendors all along this beach hounding you to sell all kinds of wares. Large parking area on north side of beach.

This is a great beach and attracts lots of family groups - especially in the evenings. Nobody ventures too far out and for a good reason - the undertow.

This beach ( although the water is warmer) reminds me of some beaches in New Zealand where you risk your life if you are not aware of the power of water. It is swimmable but use caution.

On my last night in Cabo I witnessed a middle-aged male being dragged from the water, having resuscitation attempted and looking very drowned - I could not stay to see the result but it did not look good. Be careful and watch the kids!

When you have been to Medano Beach with all its amenities, other beaches pale in comparison :) I love the ambiance of the bars and restaurants. The waiters are so entertaining with their dancing and contests!

Medano beach is simply the best place to stay if you want to be able to swim or do water activities.
Having 2 teenagers this is a must for us. The water is clean and the waves are great. A bit cool but refreshing.
You can do just about any water sport from this location. There are many vendors so prices are fairly reasonable.

If you want to enjoy the attractive coloured sea of Cabo san Lucas, this is a nice beach to go! There are some restaurants and bars where you can have something to drink and they let you use their chairs under the sun or a nice umbrella, and also there is an area where you can lie without having to rent chairs, or sun umbrellas if you don't want to pay. You can go to lover's beach from there as well or rent jetskies, go swimming or snrokelling.
