PLANESPOTTING ON MAHO BEACH IN SAINT MARTIN

A Caribbean beach so close to the airport you can literally hop from baggage to beachfront without hailing a cab...sounds idyllic, right? Maybe not. Sunbathers at Maho "Runway" Beach, on the island of Saint Martin, witness low-flying planes repeatedly throughout the week as the planes land at Princess Juliana International Airport. While the spectacle is surely something to see (check out this video), jet blasts have been known to knock beachgoers right off their feet. Would you go planespotting in Saint Martin?
