Very nice, small beach! We LOVE Maho Beach!! The water is crystal clear and clean. Great places close by to get food and drinks. Plus there are always security personnel on the property! I could sit and watch the planes every day.

This is an AWESOME experience (Make sure to stay on the sand when planes go by!) The little bar, serves GREAT drinks, lets you know when planes will be overhead and is something that EVERYONE should do at least once!

Gorgeous beach. The sand is great, the snorkeling is great and the views are obviously wonderful as well. This is on top of the planes flying directly over you, which is neat.

I´ve read many comments, that Maho Beach is too crowded and not so nice. What I can say is, that the landings and starts of the airplanes are really a big attraction! The (many) cruiseship-dayvisitors are only there between 1 and 4pm... The beach itself is small but nice!

My wife and I have been coming to St. Martin every year for approximately the past 10 years. While this beach is a must see due to the airplanes taking off and landing, it is actually quite dangerous near the jet blast from airplanes taking off. You Tube has many great videos to see but my vote is to watch... More

Where else can you stand a matter of feet behind a 747 taking off or feeling that you can reach up and touch a plane coming in for a landing? Only at maho beach!

Watching the planes land is so much fun! Especially when the big jets arrive! The prettiest ones are American Airlines, KLM, and Air France!!

The best part of this beach is getting to see the flights land and take off! It is amazing to see the power of the planes. Unfortunately the beach isn't as big as it once was so stop by to see a couple flights and then head over to Mullet Bay for a real beach experience!

We stayed at sonesta ocean point and if it wasn't for maho beach we wouldn't have loved our stay. Come and watch the planes land every day. It's amazing. The beach is beautiful. Sometimes a lot of seaweed sometimes there is hardly any. Either way it was nice. Mullet bay is only a 5-10 minute drive from maho beach and... More
