This is a must see stop in St. Maarten! So much fun to watch people and the planes departing and landing. Food is great too!

At the top of the list for place to sit and relax and just watch people get blown off the beach or a plane so low it seems you could touch its belly.

It is the best spot to comfortably watch the planes take off and land at Maho Beach... that is if they will let you sit. I enjoyed happy hour this visit 2 for 1 deals.

Loved this place. It has a great ambiance- it turns into a small club later in the evening. Good food, great service, a must see.

Drinks were about average, and a little pricey. Restrooms were clean and free. The atmosphere here is a bit like a fraternity party, and the most exciting thing to do or watch there is the planes taking off and landing at Princess Julianna airport. Staff seemed friendly, and it wasn't bad, just not as remarkable to me as some other... More

Rented beach chairs and sat on the beach with my husband. Water was crystal clear, and it was amazing to see the plans fly right over your head. Beer specials on Sunday. You can have your parking ticket validated. Over all great time

I have to say if you remotely like flight, in any respects, this is the place for you. It is exhilarating to stand under or behind a landing or taking off jet. WOW! The food here is very tasty as well. We had the coconut shrimp in spicy orange sauce. To pass the time in between landings we did indulge... More

Let's be honest: you don't come here because of the food or service quality. You come here because of the awesome views of planes landing over the Maho beach, which is right next to it. These are unbeatable... The food is fine, but the service leaves a lot of room for improvement. It's slow, waitresses sometimes forget about the orders... More

We organised a trip from our cruise boat to this famous beach to see the planes arriving at just a few feet above the beach. We were not disappointed! The cafe restaurant is perfectly positioned for great views of the arriving aircraft. It is so amazing to watch, even my wife got excited by the "show". The cafe offers a... More
