3 Things You Must Do On Maho Beach, St. Maarten

The first thing you must do is Duck! This beautiful beach to the west of Simpson Bay on the Dutch Side of St. Martin (St. Maarten) is notorious for its proximity to the airport. Planes of all sizes routinely land and take-off, seemingly within feet of the beach. In fact, swimmers are cautioned to secure their belongings out of the flight path lest a jumbo jet blow items (and them, too, judging from the sign) into the surf. The danger, or perhaps the juxtaposition of the serene surf again the roaring planes, is a big draw. This is a very popular beach on St. Maarten.

The second thing you have to do is swim. A gorgeous strand of silky sand and azure water beckons. (The airport sits across the street to the right, east.)

The third thing you have to do is party! The fabulous and famous Sunset Beach Bar sits adjacent to Maho Beach. It has several sprawling decks, an extensive bar, band facilities, rest rooms, changing areas, and friendly people. It was voted #3 Sexiest Beach Bar in the World by Travel Channel viewers and they were right. This place rocks.

Have some fun on lovely, lively St. Martin/Sint Maarten. Call me today so we can start planning your island escape. 561-841-2224
