Maho Beach Tours and Activities

star-4.5
5 Reviews
Maho Beach
Maho Beach can't boast that it's one of the most peaceful beaches in the world, but it certainly has a unique claim to fame, particularly if you're an aviation lover. This is because Maho Beach is located right next to an airport and the planes fly directly over the beach so low that you feel they might land on you. 

Kids especially love watching the planes soar overhead multiple times throughout the day at Maho Beach, but even adults quickly get caught up in the wonder of seeing a large inflight plane so close up. Hang out by the fence on the edge of the beach closest to the airport and you'll even be able to feel the blast of the jets as a plane takes off – and probably some sand particles being swirled up around you. In addition to plane watching, Maho Beach is a fun place to swim and snorkel. 

To make sure you don't miss out on seeing the big commercial planes land or take-off head over to Sunset Bar, which is located on Maho Beach and posts the flight schedule each day. You can also watch the planes from Sunset Bar while enjoying a drink and bite to eat. 

Practical Info

If arriving to St Maarten via cruise, there are shuttles from the cruise terminal in Phillipsburg that take you to Maho Beach or you can hire private transportation. If you hail a taxi once you arrive (not hard to do at the cruise terminal) make sure you arrange a pick up time with your driver for ample time to get back to your cruise ship before it departs. If staying on land, check with your hotel if they have a shuttle to Maho Beach or rent a car or hire a taxi to take you there.
Address: Beacon Hill Road, Maho, St Maarten
