You may wonder why so many people care to watch airplanes land and take off all day, go see and you will understand. Several people told us to just go do it to check the box saying we did it however we loved it! We will most likely stop here every visit just to watch some planes. The water was... More

Nice place and very friendly staff with a great view on the Princess Juliana Airport approach. With 5 cruise ships in port the place gets incredibly crowded anyhow a recommendation if you want to take pictures of the airplanes low over the beach. Sun is in your back until early afternoon. Important: schedule an hour of you go back to... More

Went by Maho Beach from my cruise ship to see the planes. This bar is at one end and is very large and can hold a lot of people. Food was good also and you can see the planes from there.

We went here for drinks and food several times in our two weeks on the island. It' a great place to go to watch the planes come and go. A lot of the patrons are fun to watch as well. I found the drinks and the food to be reasonably priced. We stayed at a Hotel this year and had... More

Nice public beach club/bar/restaurant. Decent food and drinks. Right on the water and beach. Ideal location for viewing the low flying jets passing over the beach while landing. Popular and crowded day we were there but was easy to get table and service.

Sunset is in an amazing location to watch the sunset and watch planes fly by. We walked up to get a table and there's nowhere to stand to wait. I hovered by the bar looking for an open table and wasn't acknowledged by any of the staff. After sitting at the bar for 15 min I jumped on a table... More

What is not to love. Drinks, ocean, good food, decent service and you watch the planes arriving over the beach and hitting the runway.

Great place where you can have a snack and drinks while visiting Maho beach. Smiley, friendly staff, willing to help. We ordered rosé wine, coconut shrimps and guacamole - everything was great. Shrimps were fresh, crispy and tasty, guacamole was absolutely great, served with warm tortilla chips. While staying on the beach we had couple of Margaritas and we loved... More
