Feel the rumble at Maho Beach, one of the Caribbean's most popular plane-spotting destinations. While other beaches draw visitors with their quiet setting, tourists flood this coastal spot to get exactly the opposite experience. Airplanes landing at an adjacent airport fly so low over this beach, the jet blasts can actually knock you over or blow you into the water. To spot the planes from a safe place, drop by one of the area's beach bars, many of which feature arrival/departure timetables and broadcast real-time transmissions between the landing aircraft and the airport's control tower. Put Maho Beach at the forefront of your travel plans using our Maho online road trip planner.
Maho Beach reviews
Clean beach lovely water. Awesome experience when airplanes landing. Close to lovely bars around !
The best place to be on a fine sunny day. I can't stop thinking of going back to take more pictures and eat and drink. Swim too.
