    Crowded, but definitely worth a visit to watch the planes take off and land. Be sure to bring a hat and sunscreen!

    This beach was super fun! Everyone would hold on to the fence when the large planes would take off! The power and wind from the planes would blow folks off!!!

    Maho Beach is all about holding on tight as a 747 descends low over the beach and your head, just over the perimeter fence.

    While the inviting aquamarine waters and pebbly sand of Maho Beach are pretty pristine, they often aren't the reasons for coming here. Ducking out of the way of an incoming 747 is. The beach, which is abut to the Princess Juliana International Airport's lone runway, is a draw for aviation enthusiasts and any one looking to have their heart skip a few beats. Planes pass just overhead as they land which gives any spectator brave enough to watch some nervous butterflies. You also used to be able to go right up to the fence to feel the ferocious wind of a departing airliner, but after a spate of injuries, a new fence prevents you from getting that close. There have to be some rules, right? With a couple bars flanking each side of the beach, you can pull up a chair, crack a beer, and take in one of St. Martin's best spectacles.

    Go to Maho beach grab a drink at one the bars located on the beach and wait for the airplanes to land. As you stand under 747s and 767s landing you will think you can touch them. They are probably only 15ft from the ground. When they take off stand on the beach behind the plane and see where you end up. You have to do it once.

    Maho Beach is a MUST SEE! It is amazing to sit on the beach and have the planes fly right over the top of you. The bar right on the beach, has good food, good drinks and even has speakers to you can listen to the air traffic controllers.The big planes start arriving after 12pm and the beach bar has a schedule written on a surf board so you can see what plane is coming in.

    Maho Beach is definitely a must-see. It is located at the end of Maho Bay and so close to the airport that airplanes fly right above the beach.

    you can either watch the planes landing at the airport, or watch the people watching the planes
