I was last here in 2014, and it appears to have undergone some serious expansion. Or maybe I was oblivious to it last time. This popular bar offered a "buy five beers, get one free" promo which I took advantage of.

If seeing the planes takeoff and land at Princess Juliana airport is in your plans, then the Sunset Bar is the place to do it! Great location, great views of the planes, plus good food and cold beer to go along with the fun!

This place is a must see for anyone visiting the island. The airport landing strip is just beyond the beach. Sunset sits right next to the... More

At the top of the list for place to sit and relax and just watch people get blown off the beach or a plane so low it seems you could touch its belly.

It is the best spot to comfortably watch the planes take off and land at Maho Beach... that is if they will let you sit. I enjoyed happy hour this visit 2 for 1 deals.

Loved this place. It has a great ambiance- it turns into a small club later in the evening. Good food, great service, a must see.
