Decent place but not amazing. View is good but many places on the island have as good or better. Food is similar to what you can get elsewhere but pricier. Overall the place is kind of a tourist trap, but if you are looking to...More

We were happy to see that not only is Sunset Beach Bar back, but it has expanded and is better than ever. The sunsets this trip have been amazing and usually enjoyed here with a cocktail and dinner.

Sunset Beach Bar is the perfect location to see all of the planes coming into and leaving St. Maarten. We really enjoyed our time there and it is a great place to grab a cold drink and get some rays on the beach area too!

Fasten your seatbelts for fun in the sun! Sunset Bar & Grill is St. Maarten's most popular beach bar and it's easy to see why. We are right on a beautiful white sandy beach, but also right at the end of the runway of Princess Juliana International Airport. Where else can you enjoy an ice cold beer as a huge KLM Jumbo Jet soars right over your head?
