#1 of 9 in Beaches in Cabo San Lucas
Famed for its soft sands and blue waters, Medano Beach draws constant crowds with its beachside bars and ample recreation options. In addition to whiling away your time with a cold drink in hand, you can play beach volleyball, jet ski, kayak, boogie board, and parasail. Alternatively, drop by the nearby boat port to join a tour of the famous "El Arco," a photogenic rock formation at Cabo's southern tip.

  • You can drive to the Medano across the Marina with a water taxi or even just walk around to the Marina on the promenade and ends up at the end on Medano beach. There are sun loungers and parasols by individual hotels or restaurants here. Also individual small businesses which lend, but with 13-$15 very expensive. Otherwise, there is the beach without any shadow. Clean.

Where to stay in Cabo San Lucas

Accommodations in Cabo San fall into two categories--those with easy beach access and those with a view. If you're mostly interested in swimming or diving, head to the neighborhood of El Medano Ejidal, where you can choose from a smorgasbord of luxury beach resorts and mid-range hotels. To take advantage of the area's dramatic scenery, look south to the cliff-top neighborhood of Pedregal, home to countless private rentals. For something more budget-friendly, check the streets in the city center, where the lack of sea views will be compensated with easy access to the city's best nightlife.
