I spent the day in St. Maarten with my boys. They especially loved Maho Beach, which is located right at the foot of the runway of St. Maarten’s international airport. They loved being so close to the airplanes. The beach is a short drive from the cruise stop. While you are there you can grab a drink or dinner at Sunset Beach Bar and watch the planes land over the water (and the spectator’s heads). The bar even has a flight schedule, so you can see when the big planes come in, which is usually in the afternoon. You can also sit on the beach or in the water for free if you want to be even closer to the action.
Every day is a blessing.
