We had to meet my brother and his wife who were flying in from Toronto at 6 pm on a Saturday night. Decided to go to either Driftwood or Sunset Beach Bar to get a bite to eat and enjoy a couple of cool ones while we waited. Based on some previous advice on this forum, we decided to arrive after 4 pm when the big planes have already landed and the cruise ship passengers have returned to Philipsburg. The parking spots right at Driftwood Bar were full only a few spaces, so would need to park back in Maho village and it looked like there were no tables available either.
So we drove on to Sunset Beach Bar and had no problem parking in the lot between it and the casino. We also had no problem getting a table with a good view of the beach and the end of the airstrip. We were very pleasantly surprised by the friendly and great service. The pizza and wings were also better than expected very tasty in fact and we hit a two-for-one beer special!
All was well with the world. We also saw several planes land, although most were the smaller inter-island turboprops. If you want to see the really big, trans-Atlantic planes land, like KLM and Air France, you will have to go earlier in the afternoon. We drove by later in the week around mid-day when there were 5 cruise ships in the harbour at Philipsburg, and you could hardly find a spot on Maho Beach , let alone a place to stand or sit at either of the beach bars, so be forewarned.

Had a much better and much less crowded view of the Air France landing from Karacter's bar on Simpson Bay beach, although not as dramatic as watching it swoop low over Maho Beach.

Glad to see my friends had fun. We enjoyed Maho Beach while there for my 40th birthday 18 months ago. I did not realize that planes got so close to the beach […]. Maho Beach is hands-down an AvGeek bucket-list trip that the whole family can enjoy. Watch this video of tourists feeling the jet blast at Maho […]. Your email address will not be published.

Safety Report: Westjet Flight Just 3 Seconds from Crashing in St. Maarten
Princess Juliana International Airport is the second busiest in the Eastern Caribbean, but has a runway half the size of most international airports, explaining why people can get so close to the jet. Lukla Airport in Nepal is another highly terrifying airport. The tiny runway of 1, feet has a mile cliff drop on one side and a stone wall and Buddhist shrine on the other.
Electricity in the area is poor meaning it is not uncommon for pilots to lose connection with air traffic controllers mid-flight - not a very comforting thought. The Dutch Caribbean island country is famous for its dangerous jet blasts. Play slideshow.
