Owner description: "Nurse Shark Beach" is a fun beach to explore and reachable only by boat.

You can only get there by water taxi. It is inexpensive and you pay for a round trip. The last boat back is around 5pm. The beach is fun and shallow, so a great place for families. There are a series of restaurants and you will be invited in by each one as you pass by. Look for fresh seafood, right off the boat, and an owner who will watch over your possessions as you swim.

We went on a Thursday and there was hardly anyone there. You can snorkle and swim in peace and the water is nice and calm. Very relaxing break from the resort and rougher waters along Playa El Palmar.

After a morning of fishing,our captain took us to Las Gatas where a local restaurant prepared our catch of tuna!What a meal!And how great to eat it right on the beach! As we visited on Saturday, LOTS of locals started to come just as we were leaving 2 1pm.I think an early week-end day or during a weekday would probably be the best time time visit as it would be much less populated.

we loved taking the water taxi over to las gatas...lots and lots of dining options for beach clubs and of course they all want you to stop at their place. We wandered to few drink here drink there but mostly hung out with Erik as our waiter at Otillas. very good food here.
