St. Marteen and St. Martin offers a lot of things for travelers and the beaches won’t disappoint you. Like most Caribbean islands, it’s a destination to relax, enjoy the sand, sun, and crystal clear blue waters. These are some of the beaches that we visited during our stay.
Famous for its beautiful white sand beach and proximity to the airport runway, in which makes it to one of the coolest beaches in the world. People come here to chill and relax but some also come here to get an adrenaline rush. Airplanes fly so low over the beach, you almost can reach out and touch them. Thrill-seekers think the airplanes flying low over Maho Beach is awesome and I thought so too. However, be aware, as two pilots from Delta Airlines told me on our first night, it is extremely dangerous and people have been hurt. For me, it was one of those parent decisions you have to make and as I had the kids with me I decided to just experience it safely from a little further along the beach. The Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, where we stayed at, also gives a good vantage point of the airplanes landing and all those people holding on to the fence; you even get to see some blown away into the water 🙂
While we enjoyed watching airplanes landing and taking off, we also had a fantastic time just relaxing while the kids were having fun.
