Los Cabos is home to a lot of amazing beaches, but as anyone who has visited the popular vacation destination knows, not all of the beaches are swimmable.
Additionally, a number of the beaches are fantastic for getting away from the crowds for some rest and relaxation but don’t have a lot of amenities beyond that.
Medano Beach in Cabo San Lucas, though, has plenty to offer, and here are the top 5 things to do when visiting Los Cabos’ most popular beach:
Take A Dip In Cabo’s Best Swimmable Beach
As we mentioned earlier, there are not a lot of swimmable beaches in Los Cabos due to the strong, unpredictable currents that are a common occurrence.
Medano Beach, though, located in Cabo San Lucas, is not only swimmable but is the most popular swimmable beach in Los Cabos.
A trip to this beautiful vacation destination isn’t complete without taking a dip in Cabo’s best-swimmable beach.

Dine With Your Feet In The Sand
There is no shortage of great restaurants in Cabo San Lucas, but there are only so many where you get the opportunity to dine with your feet in the sand.
Many of the ones that do exist can be found on the ever-popular Medano Beach.
Mango Deck, The Office on the Beach, and Hacienda Cocina y Cantina are a few of the great options, offering everything from seafood to elevated Mexican cuisine.

Rent A Paddleboard Or Kayak
While the bulk of the tours involving water activities being offered can be found in the marina area, Medano Beach is a great place to rent smaller watercraft.
You’ll find numerous vendors offering paddleboard and kayak rentals up and down the beach.
You’ll also get some of the best views while kayaking and paddleboarding at Medano Beach, including views of Land’s End and the famous Arch of Cabo San Lucas.

Have A Drink At A Cantina
Few things are better than sitting at a beautiful beachfront location and having a cocktail while taking in the views, and the views at Medano Beach are breathtaking.
Fortunately, there are plenty of great places to get some sun and have a drink with your toes in the sand.
Tabasco Beach Restaurant & Bar, The Sand Bar, and Omega Sports Bar are all fantastic places to have a drink, take in the views, and grab a snack while enjoying Medano Beach.

Take A Parasailing Or Hang-Gliding Tour
For the really adventurous, Medano Beach is the ideal location for parasailing and hang-gliding.
The one-of-a-kind views of Land’s End and the Arch from the vantage point high in the air can’t be beaten, and there are a few different tour operators offering the experience.
Cabo Sky Tours offers motorized hang-gliding, and JT Water Sports, which has operated on Medano Beach for years, offers parasailing tours.

How To Enjoy Medano Beach
While all of these activities are great ways to experience Medano Beach, there is also something to be said for a lazy beach day too.
Pack up some gear or rent a chair from one of the many vendors on the beach and just take in the sights and spend some time people-watching.
Not only will you be entertained, but you can get some rest and relaxation to prepare for whatever exciting activities you have planned for that evening or the next day.
