Maho Beach, Maho

(4,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • To not recommend baths because the sea is agitated but for the crazies by aircraft has no place better, it seems that the plane will land on the beach and on-off the steam turbine is so strong that throws people in water, the biggest problem is that there's no cover and get under strong sun waiting for the planes, but it was very worthwhile and would come back for sure.

  • Beautiful beach, blue sea, the planes land a few meters from the head of the people on the beach because the airport is next. A unique feel and insdescritível. Definitely would come back.

  • Hilarious beach is a must to take pictures of airplanes landing, and not only that, the beach is spectacular, and the very entertaining beach bars. There is a market nearby if you want to save a little on food and alcohol.
