“Nice beach, decent snorkeling”
Review of Maho Beach

This beach is very close to the road, so parking is convenient. The view from the beach is beautiful, and the snorkeling is pretty good. We saw a wide variety of fish, sea turtles, stingrays, and even a small shark at this beach. A bit of a drive to get there, but driving around the island is one of the joys of a visit to St. John!!

Very relaxed setting with typically calm waters. Snorkeling is good on the east side out around the eco tent area. There are many turtles eating the sea grass just a few yards out from shore.
This is a beautiful beach with a very tropical setting.

Went to go snorkelling here on my last day on St. John, but the visibility was very bad due to wave activity. On a calm day could be good.

We loved this beach, snorkeling was ok, we ended up seeing more fish in other beaches, but the color of the water was amazing and the clarity was equally impressive. The beach itself isn't that busy so that's another plus. If you want to do snorkel, stay on the right side of the beach.

The sand area is fairly narrow, but still enough room to park a few chairs and a cooler. The water is nice and calm, but the color of the water isn't as nice as Trunk Bay, Cinammon Bay, or Hawksnest Bay.
