Came to the beach via a jet ski tour. We didn't go onto the beach but we did get to see some planes land which was awesome. Definitely worth checking out.

Sonesta Maho Beach resort is a great all inclusive resort. Many options for meals. Be careful not too over-eat. The beach and ocean view is amazing. Everyone is friendly.

We spent the day at Maho beach and it was an amazing day. The beach was free, clean, and fun-filled with the waves in the ocean and the view of the airplanes landing and taking off.

the wave at Maho Beach were very strong when we were there. So did not see any jet ski around. Maho beach is not that big of a area too. Also, St. Marteen is not like a "jungle" island so I am not aware of any zipline place?
