Plane Landing (almost) at the Beach: A True St Maarten / St Martin Attraction

Maho Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the world, as it finds itself at the end of the runway of Princess Juliana International Airport, laying the scene for many vacation movies that went viral of plans landing at the adjacent Dutch side of St Maarten airport.


A surfboard went chalkboard at the Sunset Beach Bar provides you with a schedule of what airplanes to expect soon to depart. Propeller planes are not to be feared, but when a Boeing is about to depart, keep your belongings together and brace! In the evening, enjoy nearby Maho Village for a cocktail to shake off the sand.
