“Quite beach, very relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

If you need a quite beach, this is the one to visit in St. John. It is rich in sea life, can do snorkeling, read a book, lime... And with a great view of the passing vessels to and from the British VIs.

“Easy to get to!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We were recommended to Maho Bay by a local we met on the airplane. It was secluded and mostly empty, beautiful aqua water and soft white sand. Very easy to access, parked along the road and just steps to this beautiful beach! A must see!

“One of my favorite STJ beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Great less traveled beach in St John. Just love this beach to just kick back or snorkeling. Lots of sea turtle action on the grassy flats.

“Wonderful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Small, narrow beach but fantastic snorkeling to see lots of turtles and stingrays. Lots of street parking and a parking lot that fills up in late morning. My favorite, easy, accessible beach on St John. Can't say enough good things about it!
