One of the most popular beaches in Los Cabos, Playa el Médano is considered the safest for swimming. It’s also quite long, offering lots of space for sunbathers to lay out a towel for the day. Those are two reasons why it attracts the crowds; another is Medano’s reputation for a party atmosphere. The beach’s proximity to downtown Cabo San Lucas makes it easy to hop onto the sand, order a margarita or a michelada (a beer-based Mexican concoction) and take part in the local scene.
