Hotels The hotels here are just across the street from the beach, and going up 2 more streets. Some of the biggest and best hotels are here, as well as $8 a night guesthouses. Also a few more guesthouses on South Ocheteaul Beach by the river.
Other Things to do Many boat tours start from Ocheteaul Beach. There're internet shops, and travel agencies, a movie theater, karaoke, volleyball, jet skis, banana boat, discos, full moon parties, Booze Cruises, and a casino or three. Ocheteaul and Serendiptiy Beaches are now the most popular destination in town.
Getting Here From town, go towards the Golden Lion circle. Go to the second or third or fourth street around the circle and another 600 yards, you're there. It's about 5 minutes from downtown, and you can get a motorcycle taxi for a dollar during the day, or half that much if you can bargain. (locals pay about 40 cents). Tuk Tuks are around double the price.
South Ocheteaul is about a 10 minute walk to the left (facing the ocean). Or you can get a car, motorycle or Tuk Tuk behind the "Golf Course" for a 5 minute ride. The Beach ends at a river, and just over the river is a small hill. There are a few hotels / guesthouses here, and beach bar restaurants. Very quiet and beautiful. You can walk (but not ride) over the hill to "Near O" Otres Beach.
