This was a nice place to go for snacks, drinks and to watch the planes fly right over top of your head. The prices are a little higher than other places, but the experience was worth it.

Nothing fancy, but great music, right on the beach. Drinks average, happy hour every afternoon. Friendly folks! Enjoyed music and sunsets.

Probably the best place to watch the airplanes land and take off at the St. Maarten/St. Martin airport (Princess Juliana Airport) Just don't hang onto the fence when these big brutes are taking off otherwise you might never get the opportunity to watch again!

Fasten your seatbelts for fun in the sun! Sunset Bar & Grill is St. Maarten's most popular beach bar and it's easy to see why. We are right on a beautiful white sandy beach, but also right at the end of the runway of Princess Juliana International Airport. Where else can you enjoy an ice cold beer as a huge KLM Jumbo Jet soars right over your head?
