Sunset Bar & Grill is alongside the beach at Maho. The restaurant/bar has tables overlooking the oceans and the airplanes come in very close. I got some pretty pictures here!! Drinks were good too. I got a frozen drink and all of the frozen drinks I saw on the menu were $9 each.

Took a cab from the cruise terminal to Maho Beach and this great restaurant for $8/person each way. Ride took about 20 mins; we had read reviews of terrible traffic, but were fortunate to be there on a Sunday with only one other ship in port and had no issues. There was a small pool that I guess you could... More

Great food. So close to the beach. Accommodating staff. Airplanes so close you think you can touch them. Turns into night club at night that is awesome for younger crowd.

There is no doubt that the airport beach set-up is unique and fun to see. If you thought the restaurant and bar next to the airport might be touristy, you'd be right! It is a tourist trap where the highlight is the view of the airport beach. The food is average bar food, nothing special, and the drinks are typical... More

Right at the end of the runway, this place gives you a front row seat to aircraft landing and taking off. Maho beach is also right there if you are wanting some sand and ocean water. Good food, drinks and atmosphere. One of our favorite places to spend an afternoon.

We visited the bar when we went to Maho Beach to watch the planes landing. It is a short distance from the cruise terminal and cost $8 each way in a taxi. The bar is at the end of the sandy beach and is a large outdoor terrace that allows you to see the planes coming in. There is also... More

Few things on this island are more exhilarating than clinging to the fence whilst an aircraft spools up for take-off right in front of you. You'll see crowds of people doing it by Sunsets and it is more exciting than watching the planes fly overhead but you are NOT supposed to do it as it is dangerous and prohibited. So...... More

My sweetheart and my hotel is right across the beach from the Sunset Bar and Grill (Royal Islander La Plage). A 200 yard walk and we are there. On their deck one can enjoy the sand and sea. The most enjoyable activity is to watch the jets coming in for a landing at SXM airport. If you have not seen... More

We enjoyed our evening at the Sunset Bar&Grill. The dining was a bit more upscale than the other places we ate during the week so it was a nice break. We started with drinks and I tried the Mango margarita - very good. The Veal Piccata was excellent and my wife enjoyed the shrimp tacos.
