We introduce a family of algebraic curves over $\F_{q^{2n}}$ (for an odd $n$) and show that they are maximal. When $n=3$, our curve coincides with the $\F_{q^6}$-maximal curve that has been found by Giulietti and Korchm\'{a}ros recently. Their curve (i.e., the case $n=3$) is the first example of a maximal curve proven not to be covered by the Hermitian curve.
