I spent most of my trip to SXM in this bar. I'd arrive in time for the A320 from New York and leave after the A330 from Amsterdam. Usually I could get a seat/table with a good shooting view and immediately order some cola. I'd...More

We ate a quick lunch here when we went to Maho Beach to watch the planes come in a couple of days ago. We had the guacamole and chicken quesadilla- both were very good. Service was good and fast.

Beach is small with kinda rough surf & big waves, but very active with the crowds & the low flying planes. Topless women drink for free. Need I say more?

Good place to hang out, grab a drink and watch the planes land. Fun times! We're going back in December when on a cruise & can't wait! Best bar on Maho beach.

We hadn't gotten around to seeing the airplanes at Maho Beach so on our last day before we went to the airport we had breakfast at Sunset Beach Bar. My expectations were very low, thought it was a tourist trap. So wrong! Delicious breakfast! And...More

Beautiful place to have breakfast. Watch the planes coming in. My wife had the fruit plate and it was a lot of fresh fruit. Myself, I went with the Benedict which was great. We will return when we come back to the island.

Sunset Beach Bar is a must! It's right next to the Maho Beach experience, where the planes fly so low you think they're going to land on the beach! The music is great!!! Day or night! The drinks were good and so was their food!...More

The sunset beach bar is simple but located nicely at the start of the runway. You can spot planes landing and taking off. The food is simple but tastefull. It os next to Maho beach where you can take a swim.

Fasten your seatbelts for fun in the sun! Sunset Bar & Grill is St. Maarten's most popular beach bar and it's easy to see why. We are right on a beautiful white sandy beach, but also right at the end of the runway of Princess Juliana International Airport. Where else can you enjoy an ice cold beer as a huge KLM Jumbo Jet soars right over your head?
