Maho Beach

Maho Beach is facing the west of the Caribbean sea, so sunset views are great, but sometimes obstructed by approaching airplanes landing at close by Princess Juliana airport (SXM).

The beach is lined with a few rocks to both ends, and a picturesque cave, however a bit too far to swim out to there. Snorkeling is supposed to be good around the rocks, depending on weather . Waters can be rough at times.

Maho Beach, a part of the Maho Resort and Royal Island Club, is a small stretch of white beach, but it is the location what attracts all of its visitors: The beach is located at the southern end of the runway of Princess Juliana International Airport, thus providing you with a very special experience! For those who love a thrill, watch and see incoming Jumbo jets gliding in and landing just a few yards above your head!

Don´t forget to bring your camera, because nowhere else a Boeing 747 will be passing as close over your head as on Maho Beach. Sit right in the middle of the beach, and you will get the full thrill! And when jets are taking off, the blast is so strong that it´s blowing sand and belongings all over the place!

Maho Beach otherwise is a white powdery sand beach with a few seagrapes and palm trees. Loungers and umbrellas are available. The beach has several resorts, hotels and beach bars/restaurants, so it's convenient to go to those closeby facilities such as Caravanserai Resort, Cheri's Cafe, Maho's Beach Resort, or Sunset Beach Bar, probably THE best place to on the beach to watch incoming and departing airlines! The best day and time to go is Sunday afternoon between 2:00pm and 4:00pm.
