Maho Bay, Virgin Islands National Park

4.7
#5 of 14 in Outdoors in Virgin Islands National Park
Take a trip down to Maho Bay, a secluded beach. Have a dip in the clear waters and observe coral formations, stingrays, and sea turtles roaming around the ocean depths. Pack some snacks to eat at one of the onsite picnic tables, or just an umbrella and chair to flop down and enjoy a good book. Restrooms and dressing rooms add to the convenience of the attractive bay, while a gravel road makes it easily accessible, if a little off the beaten track.
