We stayed at sonesta ocean point and if it wasn't for maho beach we wouldn't have loved our stay. Come and watch the planes land every day. It's amazing. The beach is beautiful. Sometimes a lot of seaweed sometimes there is hardly any. Either way it was nice. Mullet bay is only a 5-10 minute drive from maho beach and... More

One of the clearest water on the island, some rocks on the beach. You go to Maho for the planes, but you get one free bonus, clear blue water. The beach is Ok but definitely not the nicest of the island.

We loved this beach. Sat around and just relaxed looking out at the water. Everyone was very friendly and was just like us....on vacation and looking for a great time!

My wife and I recently called at Maho Beach as part of our honeymoon cruise. We both agreed this was one of the best experiences of our lives. When you get off the cruise simply make for the taxi point and the taxi Marshalls will group you into a taxi with more people who are heading to the same place... More

Yeap. Something to do. Good atmosphere. Double check times for KLM as that's the highlight. Easy $2.50 local bus from most places ( connection may be required) good food choices in the area for all. Head to casino after.join up. Free credit. Free beer/spirits. Nice day turning to night entertainment.

My family of 5, which includes my one-year-old son, my five-year-old son, my husband, me, and my mom, recently returned from a 7-day Southern Caribbean cruise, and St. Maarten was our first port of call. We experienced Amigo Tours' Orient and Maho Beach Bum Tour… it was wonderful! I admit that Maho Beach is more for sightseeing than a beach... More

We had a few hours before our flight from St Martin and this spot was great for some food, drinks, and viewing the famous low flying jets into the airport. They have made great improvements with a nice deck, bar, and souvenir shops that were nice to be around. Can wear swimsuit and swim in the little pool, has bathroom... More

Maho Beach is a great place to spend a few hours. It can get very busy at the weekend. Well worth trying to catch the 747 comeing in to land if it's scheduled in during your stay. The weather can turn very quickly from bright sunshine to overcast - downpour to sunshine. I was staying at the Sonesta Maho Beach... More
