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?

Right on maho beach, so if plane spotting is your thing this is the spot. I does get really crowded when cruise people are, but not bad when they leave. Great view of sunsets. Drinks are on the pricier end, but not that bad.

A trip to St. Maarten is not complete without a stop to the Sunset Beach Bar. Everything you've read about the planes coming in so close is true. You will never hear plane noise the same way. Beers were overpriced but the t-shirts were great and the food looked decent. Hang out on the beach and beautiful water, enjoy the planes, grab and beer and a t-shirt here and call it a day.

We went here our first night in St. Maarten...the food was good and the view excellent. It was fun to watch the planes come into the airport! It's a "must do" while here.

This little beach bar gets SOOO crowded when cruise ships are in cuz everyone wants to come and get buzzed by the huge jets coming and going from SXM airport. You HAVE to experience it once if you visit.

Sunst beachbar: nice place to have drinks and watch the airplanes coming in. The food is simple and not very good. Everything is just greasy and made to serve fast. Nothing wrong with the bartender and drinks.
