“Wind wind wind”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

The bay is gorgeous but the wind, not so much. The waves were so big that snorkeling was out of the question with the coral and sand bottom. We watched kayakers get rolled and tossed and finally call it quits. The water on the beach peppered us with coral chunks that hurt. I imagine this place is amazing when the weather cooperates and there is still fun to be had, but a little less wind would have made it better.

“Pretty but removed and beach average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

This is removed and you need to walk a fair distance from Acumel. The beach is very average. Few services available.

Great beach and very friendly area to visit. Had a great time there in january. The beach is beautiful and the bay is filled with some amazing marine life. I had the opportunity to swim with turtles while I was there.
