Very calm clear water. The beach can be rocky and it’s too big so I could see it getting crowded. The restrooms are very basic. The nice thing that there are some pavilions with picnic tables. Can also rent gear there too.

Maho bay not only offers beautiful views, clear waters and sea turtles but has paddle board rentals, a nice bar, and food. The beach was quite and clean and across the street was a nice place to relax and listen to live music.

Snorkeling was good. The water was calm and visibility was okay.. enjoyed the guide service. I would do the trip again. We saw lots of turtles and stingrays. Go to the far end where the buoy markers are.

This place is beautiful! We enjoyed the water so much. We found a beautiful shell, looked through the loads of black rocks and had tons of fish swimming around us often. Great experience. We will be back in the morning!
