Quote: FLYING INTO THE AIRPORT (SXM) WAS GREAT. YOU ARE SO CLOSE TO THE WATER THAT IT LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE LANDING ON IT. THE FOOD ON THE ISLAND IS EXCELLENT. WEATHER WAS GREAT EVERY DAY. WATCH OUT FOR THE MOSQUITOS.

Maho Bay

Attraction | "MAHO BEACH"

The airport is next to the beach. While you are laying on the beach the large planes fly 25 - 50 feet above you as they land. People come to the beach everday between 1 - 4pm to watch the large planes fly in and out. A word of caution - hang onto something as Air France and the 757's take off. The force pushes you into the water. It's fun for everyone.
