A true paradise. Go there on a fisherman boat and buy the food for dinner from the local village. If you like camping, stay the night.

There is snokeling right off the beach on some beaches and you can take a boat to other snorkeling sites. See as much as you can of this wonderful island.

With crystal clear waters, white sand, and plunging cliffs and rock formations around it, I felt like I had stumbled into a rare gem that would make a James Bond movie location scout shiver with excitement. But the best part was getting there: Trekking from Beloi to Biqueli to Acrema brings one through savannah of eucalyptus shrub, swampland, and mesmerizing topogrophy. Start at 5 AM to avoid the harsh sun, and watch the sun bask the route in gold. It's challenging at times, climbing through rocks and stuff, then you feel shamed as a group of schoolchildren casually walk by in flip-flops--it's their daily route to school. Another highlight is the hospitable fishing village nearby, tidy rows of homes and a church with trails cooled under shade of jacaranda and coconut trees.

His English and Portuguese is limited (I spoke Indonesian with him), but he can help arrange more trekking routes, tell story about the village's history, tell you where to pitch a tent, arrange a homestay, and cut open coconuts if you're reluctant with a cleaver. One heartbreaking minus side: Parts of the village (and trek to it) are littered with plastic...

possibly best to stay a few days to enjoy this attraction. I went on freighter that ran late ..you are not sure where to go when you get there and there is not a lot of food choices..

I came here walking from Beloi and was amazing, after that long walk, to be welcomed from Elias (a sort of King of Akrema) with a coconut to drink and being brought from him in a nice spot of the beach where to swim and snorkel on the clean fresh water...
i spent 2 nights in Akrema and i totally enjoy it...
