Maho beach is an experience like no other. It is a mix of sun, sand, water and danger. Maho beach sits at the end of the runway in St Maarten, on normal days it is not too crowded, but on cruise ship days it gets crazy. The beach is not that big and fairly narrow, it has beach bars on both ends (with really good prices - Carib $2). But the middle is the danger zone, planes of all sizes land and takeoff from the middle of the beach. All of the planes are fun to watch land from anywhere on the beach, but takeoff is another story. If a large jet starts down the runway to takeoff......run to the ends of the beach, with your stuff. Otherwise you might be swimming for it. A lot of people think it is cool to stand right behind the jets during takeoff, but I would not recommend it. It was fun to watch, but the flying sand really hurts. Thanks Maho for the fun times.
