Cabo Activities

Tacos and a day at the beach just seem to go together. Whether you pause mid-day to enjoy a lunch of freshly prepared tacos or you end the day with tacos and a beer, it’s all made better when you’ve spent the day along the beautiful Cabo oceanfront. Home to numerous white sand beaches, visitors can opt to stake their place in the sand along their favorite stretch of shoreline or spend the day beach hopping around to enjoy the variety of beaches Cabo has to offer.

Medano Beach is a favorite for a variety of reasons. The calm waters here make for great swimming conditions, and you’ll also find options for activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, and embarking on boat excursions to all be easily accessible from this popular stretch of shoreline. Medano Beach is also where you’ll find the most onsite amenities in comparison with other less developed Cabo beaches. Beachfront restaurants, bars, and clubs line the waterfront, making mid-day breaks for tacos, other food options, or a cold drink easily accessible without having to commute.

Visit some of Cabo’s most iconic sights from Medano Beach, such as The Arch at Land’s End, Lover’s Beach, the Sea Lion Colony, and Divorce Beach. Situated along the outer edge of the Bay of Cabo San Lucas, these are all reached by boat. Easily catch a glass bottomed boat from the shores of Medano Beach or from the nearby marina.
