Daytime in Cabo, the beach is the place to be seen, unless, of course, you are just watching. People of every size, shape, color and degree of undress gather here for fun in the sun. Tourists from North America, Europe, Asia and other parts of Mexico crowd the beach to partake of the party.
Restaurants, bars and vendors line the main tourist zone on Playa El Médano (Dune Beach), Cabo's most popular tourist beach. Vendors rent equipment for everything from snorkeling to parasailing, and beach peddlers sell everything from trinkets to mangos.
Beach activities also include, of course, sunbathing, swimming, volleyball, beachcombing, boating, bikini contests, kayaking, fishing, eating, drinking, diving, dancing, strolling, sightseeing, strutting and people watching.
The beach wraps around the sweeping curve of San Lucas Bay, among the world's deepest. "Land's End" (La Finisterra), the rocky point at the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula, is the backdrop for the bay. At Land's End, the Sea of Cortez empties into the open expanse of the Pacific Ocean, with its own beautiful, less domesticated beaches.
