This is a nice beach. Lots of activities. Great view of the arch. You can jet ski out there and take fantastic pictures.

We came here for a long weekend and were disappointed by the trash on the beach. There was a lot of plastic items and just trash either that had been blown from the restaurants or had been carried out to sea from the hurricane and...More

Medano beach is just amazing! That's my favorite beach in CSL. The view is incredible, the sand is soft, feels like walking over the clouds... ☁️ ☀️ the sunsets are amazing from that beach.

Medano beach defies description – white sand goes on and on and on. The water is so blue, and totally swimmable. The one thing I would like to add in this review that others have skipped, is the fact that even though you can walk...More

The workers were hard at it to clean up the beaches and free the debris...talk about a huge team effort. Kudos to them for working without gloves, masks or heavy equipment of any kind to render aide. It was nice to see.

Always fun to hang out at this beach and watch the "Going-ons" of Medano. Catch a boat right there to Los Arcos, get a massage, have a drink at Tabasco's, buy some souvenirs from the beach peddlers-it ALL happens right here!

This beach is touted as a swimmable beach but I wasn't comfortable doing so. The shallow part is very narrow, and then it drops off to deep water. The current is too strong to keep yourself close to shore without a lot of effort.

Can't really say much because of the debris on the beach from the recent storm. Everyone is diligently working to clean it up for busy season starting next month.

Madano beach is a great place to hang out for the day. About a 15 minute walk from the marina. Basically the only beach you can swim on close to the marina. Try one of the great places to eat, or just people watch.

Yes you can! I saw plenty of people with small coolers and beach bags, including ourselves.

Literally it starts right around the corner. But the Marina is big so it could take an hour for you to get to the other side.

every beach is open to the public. Each has a roped off area specifically for guests but they are diligent in making sure there is no public access to the grounds or pool.
