Visit Maho beach, Sint Maarten
West of the Dutch capital is Maho Beach, a world famous tourist attraction. And with good reason: lying on a towel, you watch planes landing at Princess Juliana International Airport, just a few metres above your head. A plane spotters paradise, this is one of the few places where you can admire the trajectory of an aircraft from the end of a runway.
Watching the planes above the beach has become such a popular activity that departure and arrival times of different companies are displayed on a table in the bars, and the Sunset Beach Bar and Grill even has an enclosure outside which broadcasts radio communications between pilots and air traffic controllers. Don't forget to breathe: this can be seriously exciting!
