Come sit by the beach, enjoy a drink and great food and watch the planes come and go. This is one of the most famous airports with landings and takeoffs right next to the beach. Best place to observe the close landing and powerful takeoffs.

This is a tourist destination in St. Maarten - the bar at the end of the runway at Princess Juliana airport. The property has changed a lot since we were there 3 years ago. The bar has expanded and now includes other eating places and even a pool. There is a large fence on the runway side of the road... More

This area is so unique and impressive. Enjoy a delicious lunch, seaside, while watching large jets land and take off so close to you, it feels like you could reach out and touch them. Wear your suit and hang out on the beach afterwards for a swim in the warm, clear, tropical blue ocean. My staff member was not very... More

Even if you don't like watching planes coming over so low that you can almost touch them, the Sunset Bar is a nice, lively spot. The happy hour(s) are really fun, lot of people, local of tourist attending. When you visit Sint Maarten, you really have to hang out at this bar for at least one afternoon.

A great venue to watch people and airplanes at the famous Maho Beach. We arrived on the island by cruise ship and took a taxi, $8/person each way to the Sunset Bar. The bar has been recently remodeled and expanded with additional seating. They used to play the Air Traffic Control from the airport, but that has been replaced with... More

Food and service is ok. Views of the incoming flights is awesome. Get onto the beach in front of the runway. This is a "must do" when visiting St Maarten. You can go on-line to see the arriving flight schedules. Seems like a good time begins around 230pm for arriving jets. The restaurant also has a pool area and a... More

The staff at the bar and grill are amazing and friendly... despite the crowds! Great food for a reasonable price, too! We had a pizza and fries with 2 cans of pop (4 total) for around 30.00 USD...

I've visited St. Maarten three times now in the past three years, and this is the one must see, must visit, must live places on the island. You can enjoy an ocean view, plus watch the jets land and take off from the airport right in front of you. The beach, surf and fun are right below you too! The... More

Being that close to the Airport/Maho Beach I had pretty low expectations. Went there just after lunch time to watch the planes. Got some pop-poos and had a few drinks. Wasn't overpriced and the service was great! I'd do it again. Don't forget to get your parking validated, if you drove your own wheels.
