“Thanksgiving day 2012”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

What a way to spend Thanksgiving day on a beautiful beach with my sweetie and four of our close friends! We ate turkey sandwiches on the beach while soaking in the beautiful views and sunshine!

“Heavenly...great snorkeling, but didn't see any turtles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

This is a gorgeous, relatively small beach where sea turtles nest. Although we didn't see any, the snorkeling was still absolutely amazing. It's convenient, with parking only a few steps from the beach, unlike some others on STJ, but that can also be a liability if you are looking for privacy. Either way, Maho Beach is a must-see.

“Nice beach, decent snorkeling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

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!!

“Turtles, turtles everywhere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

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.

“Big beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

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.
