Sound and fury at the beach
The runway at Princess Juliana airport on Sint Maarten runs right to the beach, and you can get as up close and personal as you'd like with jetliners on approach. A couple of beach bars provide pleasant venues for watching, but to get the full effect you need to walk along until you're directly under the glide path. Not a relaxing day at the beach, but for us it was a fun way to spend a few minutes before leaving.
