Most people take a water taxi from the town pier to get to this beach. The price hasn't changed much in ten years... around $3.00 USD round trip. What a deal! Usually we walk to Las Gatas over a rocky path past La Ropa. One needs good sturdy soles for this walk...

Surprise Entertainment at Owens
We've visited this funky place -Owen's Las Gatas Beach Club- many times. If we plan on eventually finding a place for food or drinks, we'll always walk past every available stop to get to the the one at the end. That's how we first visited Owen's. It sits on a point at the end of the beach. Owen Lee himself is somewhat of a local celebrity, having scuba dived with Jacques Cousteau in his earlier years. His book "A prisoner in Paradise" chronicles the colorful history of his life and work in Zihuatanejo. It's a great read. Owen's is closed now, but we have lots of fond memories of the people we met there, including Owen, while just kicking back for an afternoon on the ocean.
