We visited Maho on a day that was picture perfect. Very blue skies, white puffy clouds, calm water, and hardly any people! Very beautiful and calm beach. Lots of sea turtles if you keep your eyes out.

Beautiful and shallow...you are able to walk way out. Early and late in days are the most empty times. Our favorite beach of the trip.

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.

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.
