Playa Médano is Cabo's most crowded beach, with crystal blue waters and plenty of beachside watering holes attracting hordes of sunbathers. In addition to taking it easy with a drink, Playa Médano also offers some active attractions, including beach volleyball, jet skiing, kayaking, boogie boarding and parasailing. From the nearby boat port you can also take snorkeling tour or a panga (boat) out to the iconic El Arco.
Despite the crowds, Playa Médano and its waters remain very clean. Recent travelers appreciated the soft sand, clear water and the fact that they could actually swim in the ocean here. Beachgoers were also pleased with the variety of nearby eateries and bars for when they got hungry or were craving a drink. The only downside visitors mentioned was the numerous (and persistent) vendors trying to peddle souvenirs.
Playa Médano, situated just south of downtown and east of the marina, is free to visit and there are no set hours of operation.
