Best beach for Turtle sighting

Last time I was there, we went to several beaches and never got to see a turtle... where am i most likely to see one on this trip?

I have always seen a turtle in the grassy area at Maho and at Waterlemon.

I'd guess we've seen more at Francis than anywhere else.

Always at Maho and Francis. I've seen litte, baby ones at Hawksnest twice, but not every time. It's hit or miss there.

It took me 14 years and more than that many trips to finally spot a turtle and when I did, it was at Maho. In fact, there were so many, I felt I had to keep my hands and arms next to my body so I didn't get too close to them.

We had good luck at Honeymoon in the grassy area in the middle.
