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 visit Maho Beach on your trip to Maho, use our Maho holiday planner.
