If you are looking for things to do in St Maarten you can’t go past one of the coolest beaches we have ever been to – and we were brought up in Australia! Maho Beach sits directly adjacent to Princess Juliana International Airport – one of the smallest airports in the world. We literally experienced the jet forces of a Bowing 747 take off just metres away, as we got flown back into the sea behind us.

Looking out at sea as you watch a plane fly right above your head and land a few metres above the beach is a  sight we will both never forget! We stood and watched as unsuspecting travellers were blown across the beach along with their bags and umbrellas was priceless.
