I know that the question about sand at Maho gets asked all the time and I know ultimately the ocean will decide how much or how little there is at any given time. We question is, is the amount of beach at Maho truly random throughout the year or is there any sort of seasonality to it generally?

We’re considering making up our trip from March 2019 in July 2020 and we love watching the planes land at Maho. Last July in looking through the webcam there was almost no sand. Is that generally the case in July or is it truly random without any way to know what we are going to get?

I looked on the webcam yesterday and the beach was as big as I have ever seen it.

Looks like someone turned the camera, and pointing straight down.
