Los Cabos Transportation is the Best Transport to The Popular Medano Beach


May 4, 2016

Playa el Médano, or "The Dune Beach," is comprised of several miles of swimming beach beginning at the east side of the harbor entrance, extending all the way to Villa del Palmar on the east end of the bay. Playa El Médano (Medano Beach) is the closest beach to town and is the main, safe – and most popular – Cabo San Lucas Beach. In this same area, you will find plenty of hotels, bars, and restaurants, making Medano Beach a prime tourist destination. Even better news is that Cabo Pacific Tours serves this area and is your local, go-to transportation service for getting you to the beach.  

Medano Beach is close to downtown Cabo San Lucas – and is where the action is. It is a coveted destination beach for the young and young at heart. It does not necessarily offer the tranquility of Santa Maria or Palmilla Beach, but that’s what makes the beaches of Los Cabos so unique. There is plenty of room for everyone and their chosen recreation.

You’re sure to have a good time at this popular beach whether you choose a watersport activity like swimming, jet skiing, kayaking, waterskiing, or banana boating, or if you just want to hang out and enjoy the sand and great seafood. Snorkeling gear and dive trips to nearby sites are easily arranged from here. Medano Beach is also prime sales territory for the colorful local vendors who will courteously offer up a bit of everything – from snacks to blankets, sombreros, temporary tattoos, hair braiding, and jewelry.

This area is packed with restaurant-bars in the sand, and popular spots to eat and grab a cool one are:  The Office, Mango Deck, Billygan’s Island, and Las Palmas. For less action, head northeast toward Villa del Palmar. With plenty to do and little surf year round, this beach is also highly recommended for families.

This area has a rich history, and Hernan Cortes' navigator, Francisco De Ulloa, first discovered Playa El Medano in 1537. From 1565 to the early 1800's, pirates plundered passing ships; they laid in wait for Spanish galleons returning from the Philippines. Now, the action is a lot less dangerous, as El Medano boasts activities ranging from watersports to beach sports and bikini contests.

El Medano has an outstanding view of Land’s End, the arch, from just about every vantage point, but parking may be difficult – especially during events, spring break, and holidays. So let Cabo San Lucas Transportation escort you right up to the beach and then back to your hotel when your adventure is done for the day.
