Plane Spotting at Maho Beach
Located on Maho Bay, Maho Beach is known for its proximity to the Princess Juliana International Airport, with airplanes flying low over the beach. In fact, don't be surprised if you get sand-blasted, although having a plane land that close to you is a very special experience.

The beach is quite popular with aviation buffs, as well as photographers looking to capture an unusual beach shot. Here, you'll find soft, white sand, and turquoise waters, not to mention excellent waves for windsurfers and skim boarders. Grab a bite nearby: Try the Sunset Bar and Grill, famous for its daily hermit crab races.
