Every year we make a point of stopping at Maho to snorkel. It is calm, clear (generally) and beautiful. Easy access and typically uncrowded (unlike Trunk where they bring in cruise ship day trippers by the taxi-load). We always enjoy floating and watching the sea turtles, typically you'll see anywhere from 2 or 3 to more floating below. In February there were so many conchs - in other years I've seen lots of starfish. There are typically rays gliding along the sandy bottom - and tons of colorful fish along the reefs on either edge.
A great stop for the day if you're driving and if by taxi, just let the driver know you want to be picked up at a certain time - generally they are very amenable to coming back!
In short - this beach is just a perfect place to enjoy a few leisurely hours in perfect, clear water.
