Medano beach is the best! Very forceful so make sure you understand how to get in and out so you don't get overwhelmed. Go with the flow! Alot of action on the beach and just too much fun!

Very Relaxing beach and excellent for pictures. Wonderful for surfing and swimming if you go away from the rocky section of the beach.

Spent an afternoon here. Nice water for swimming but quite crowded. Paid $10 for a chair and Umbrella and worth every penny. The venders are relentless but accept No for an answer.
