“Maho Beach St. John, USVI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

A beautiful beach with limited parking, but a short walk once you park. Or take the taxi from Cruz Bay and don't worry about parking. Just make sure you don't miss the last one back.

“Sea Turtle Nesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Maho beach is my wife's favorite. It is a little further out than Trunk and Cinnamon but only a couple dollars more for a taxi ride. Make sure to schedule a time to be picked up since most taxi's don't come out past Cinnamon! Many villa visitors come here for the calm waters and beautiful scenery. The locals kids have swim lessons here a couple days a week. Bring your chairs and cooler for a full day of snorkeling with sea turtles and rays and relaxation. FYI, sea turtle nesting from June-November.

“Where the Locals go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Further out on the north shore than many tourists go, Maho is an great beach with very good snorkeling opportunities. One of the better places to see turtles, the laid back beach is a fun place. Parking can be hard to find if you get there late or on a weekend.

Beautiful Beach. Snorkeled with sea turtles! Saw nurse sharks. They do have picnic tables and a bathroom "of sorts".
