Description: 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?

A must-see during a visit to St. Maarten. Enjoyed cocktails while watching the planes land. Small and clean beach next to the bar.

Sunset Beach Bar is one of the most unique bars in the world. Some of the most beautiful women go there topless, enjoying drinks, dinner and the incredible sunsets that make the Caribbean loved by tourists from all over the world. The drinks are good if a touch expensive, and the place is always jammed.

“A great place to watch the planes”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Great location for plane-watchers to hang out, and they play to the crowd. They have flight schedules posted in several spots and you can hear the tower communications at the bar. Food is standard burgers & fries selection, but service was quick.

“Great place, great bartenders”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Had heard great things about Sunset Beach Bar and were staying at the Caravansari. The place was always busy but we had great service and good food. Thanks to our great bartender, he did an awesome job!! Watching the planes is amazing and the beach is great as well. Hope to return in the future.

“Just for the fun”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

The most important attraction of St. maarten: the departure and arrivals of the planes.
Oh! I almost forget it: there's a place called Sunset that you can eat and drink while watching the planes. The burgers and the fries are delicious! (I'm a fan of burgers no matter how or where so I don't know if a could be a good judge about that). But if you go to St. Maarten and you don't go to this place, well..., you can go to another (only that the planes won't be included. Enjoy!!!!!
