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?

“the best burgers on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

if you are a person that wants to relax and enjoy the planes land and enjoy out of this world burgers then go down to sunset beach bar. the burgers are great the views are better. and if you want to dance and party go there at night were many contest and dance offs are held same with bikini contests. so go and enjoy but don't take my word for it try it yourselves.

Watching the planes land, even 747's while enjoying a nice drink and a perfect hamburger, what more do you want?

“Fun afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

We spent New Years Day afternoon at this fun place.

We had to wait about 30 minutes for a table and its "every man for themselves". There is no list- you just have to hover until someone leaves.

The food was typical bar food but good and reasonable.

Having grown up in the aviation industry and spent most of my career in it I had expected watching the airplanes come and go being so much fun. You get a very unique view and the party atmosphere made for a very fun afternoon.


Make sure you wear sunglasses. The airplanes departing kick up quite a storm of sand etc.

“Best Burgers on Tha Island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

All of their food is wonderful...especially the burgers and ribs. I love the view at sunset, hence the name! One of the most popular areas of the island. You can enjoy a meal while being entertained by jets flying in and leaving with a blast that's sure to "knock ya off your feet". A must see and dine!!

“Sun Beach Bar/Restaurant great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We went on this bar to rent chairs for the day at Orient Beach and Victor as well as the other barmaid and owner were very nice and gives us an excellent service! The location on the beach is just perfect and the meals are delicious! We tried a sea food trio and also the club sandwich and everything was excellent! Will return without a doubt! They also speak french, good to know!

Thanks again! Caroline and Daniel from Montreal, Qc
