An utterly gorgeous location just outside Xepeneche, which is quite pretty itself. According to other reviewers, it can be hideously crowded, but when we arrived there was no one else there, not even the locals who charge a fee. Perhaps it's only on cruise ship...More
I visited jinak Bay on a cruise ship. If visiting on a cruise ship, you do need to book this on the ship comma or you will be disappointed, as they only let 100 people in the morning and 100 people in the afternoon visit...More
Pristine coral reef that is limited to 100 people per day, 50 am & 50 pm.
Idyllic marine reserve, however there is no beach. Just some stairs to access the water.

Jinek Bay is a fantastic and easy snorkeling experience. Easy access, and loads of beautiful fish. The coral is not particularly colourful but the fish are. Easy for all experience levels and ages. Limited numbers so get in quick.
