The beaches on St. John are completely unreal. Maho Bay is beautiful! But with many of the beaches, get there early if you want to get a parking spot, otherwise, you need to get creative. The beach is smaller than Trunk Bay but no less...More

I'm not really into all the families at this beach and the road is only a few feet away. However, if you snorkel around the point on the right hand side of the beach, it's like snorkeling in a canyon. Very different, yet cool. Then...More

Love the turtles! It's a great little beach. Get there early to get a parking spot. There are many shade trees due to the the narrow beach and is great for little ones.

Snorkel to the right of the Bay. It is the best! Go to little Maho! Picnic tables are available. Restrooms are there as well. Hang you stuff! This is simply a great place!

Hit this beach 1st on our last day. Parking is tough if you have a rental car. A taxi can solve that. It was beautiful and not too crowded. Saw sting rays and no luck seeing turtles but they were there earlier.

We stopped at Maho Bay for two very nice visits. Coral sand beach with lots of reasonable shade, a few covered tables for picnics, and great snorkling. Some folks reported seeing Sea Turtles. Psrking can be tough. Patience required!

Sheltered from the sea and currents because of it's position, Maho is the best place to see turtles. The beach is glorious and there is some shade. Good snorkeling around to the right, the turtle and rays are over the grass, right in the middle....More

This was my favorite beach- I would recommend having a car for it though and not getting a taxi- once we wanted to leave, we had to wait quite a while for a taxi.

No they don't. There are no facilities of any kind on the beach, just sand and beautiful water.
