Turtles all over. Nice beach with bathrooms. Clear snorkeling water. About 20 parking spots. Shaded seagrape trees close to the beach to sit under.

“great quiet beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

This is a great quiet beach/cove for novice snorkelers. We saw lots of turtles. It's great with kids. Highly recommend.

“No words”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We visited Maho on a day that was picture perfect. Very blue skies, white puffy clouds, calm water, and hardly any people! Very beautiful and calm beach. Lots of sea turtles if you keep your eyes out.

“The beach of your dreams”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

Beautiful and shallow...you are able to walk way out. Early and late in days are the most empty times. Our favorite beach of the trip.
