In my visit to St. Marteen on Friday, I got a chance to take a taxi to the infamous Maho Beach located at the end of the runway for Princess Juliana International Airport. In the 45 minutes we were there, we saw US Air, Air France, and American Airlines fly overhead as well as a bunch of smaller planes. Yes, the pictures are real. Yes, the planes are that close.
If you ever visit St. Marteen, take the time to visit Maho Beach. Its an experience not to miss!
