Sunset Beach, St. Maarten
Located just a short walk from Alegria, Sunset Beach is one of St. Maarten’s top attractions.
The public beach, which is located at the end of runway 10 at Princess Juliana International Airport (SMX), is world-famous for its proximity to arriving aircraft. Due to the short runway, bystanders experience the jet blast and sensation of almost touching the incoming airliners.
The daily event has become so popular that plane spotters line the white sands of Sunset Beach to watch the planes land overhead.
For the fainthearted, watch the spectacle safely from the Sunset Bar & Grill, which is located on the resort compound of Alegria.
It's truly an experience not to be missed!
