St. Maarten is an island in the Caribbean with absolutely stunning views and sights. If staying on the island, grab a rental car and explore many of their beaches to see what makes this island so special.
Maho Beach is located right next to the airport tarmac and is an ideal place to watch airplanes fly low and over your head. As the tarmac is literally across the street from this small beach, airplanes can get extremely low so that it seems as if it’s nearly touching your head. Adventurous visitors also will grab onto the fence of the airport or stand in the way of the jets as they takeoff to feel the wind. The bigger the airplane, the crazier the jet blast, so watch out!
