Enjoyed this little quaint restaurant on Maho beach. Seeing the planes land is a definite must see. The food is quite good too. I had the fish tacos and they are huge. You get two large tacos. I recommend sharing. My Goddaughter got the burger. She didn't care for it as it was not well done. But that's her issue,... More

It's not a huge beach, but being right at the end of a runway makes this a must see attraction! We were there in the mid afternoon when there were a lot of planes coming and going. It made for great photos and a lot of fun. We stayed to the edge of the "kill zone" when I jet took... More

We booked this tour on our own not through Allure of the Seas but took a short taxi ride (cost $8/person) to Maho beach. The beach itself is very small but the water and waves were awesome. Ate lunch at the nearby Sunset Beach restaurant on the beach and the burgers are very good but huge and we should've shared... More

This is a great bar to watch the planes landing at the airport. The beach is nice too, however the bar gets absolutly packed out and tables are reserved for food with no one on them. Get a six bottle beer bucket as it can take a while to get served. Lots of building work going on at the pub,... More

Due to winds produced by the jets, there really isn't much of a beach here and unless you plan on hanging out for the day, you won't see the big airplanes. Sunset Beach Bar & Grill does, however, have the flight schedule available. We were on a tour and didn't get much time here, so our visit was a little... More

Airport beach aka Sunset beach is a little way from this beach/bay but this was a very beautiful beach. Would have spent some time there but was set out to see airport beach where all the planes come in.
