This St. Maarten Famous Maho Beach Break Excursion is available from both Philipsburg (St. Maarten) and Marigot (St. Martin) cruise ports.

There are no better words to describe this St. Maarten Beach Break at Maho Beach other than unique, fun and exciting! You get the combination of relaxing beach and the adrenaline of seeing planes passing just overhead as they are landing at the airport located feet from the beach. Note that the smaller planes usually land in the morning and the larger jets late morning/noonish.

St. Maarten's Princess Juliana International Airport is located just off Maho Beach and the beach seems to be part of the runway. As the planes come in for a landing, the people gather to watch as they appear to be passing just out of arm's reach overhead. But all is safe as the planes land on the runway just across the roadway. It is something that has become synonymous with St. Maarten and Maho Beach.

As amazing as the landings are, you will be blown away by the take-offs! Watch as the planes take off from the comforts of the local beach bar and enjoy a cold beverage as you have to see it to believe it all (food and drink not included).

Your excursion will also include stops at scenic overlooks of Simpson Bay Marina and Harold Jack Hill where the views are incredible! Your guide will be with you and be giving you a narrative background of the island on your way back to Philipsburg.

You will have the choice of either going directly back to the pier or to stay in town for shopping, dining or more sightseeing and go back to the ship at your leisure. It is a 12-15 minute walk or taxi ride is approximately $3.00 USD - taxi cost not included.

Fun afternoon at Maho beach

Signed up for this tour many months ahead of time, but had no problems when arriving for the tour. Name was on the list of reservations and was taken by van to Maho Beach. The driver made one stop for photos before arriving at the beach. Along the way, the driver provided some narrative and pointed out some highlights of the town. Arrived at Maho beach and spent a good three hours at the beach watching the planes take off and land. I could spend a whole day doing just this. It was incredible and like nothing ever seen before. After three hours, the driver was waiting at the restaurant to provide a return ride to those of us who stayed at the beach. The driver dropped all of us off in downtown Philipsburg, which was extremely convenient for finding dinner in town.

We enjoyed our day doing this tour and for the price it really is a good deal. It just wasn't quite what we thought. The beach had more of a party atmosphere than we expected, though watching the big plane land was amazing. We were a little late so we only saw one of the two large planes scheduled to land. Great for some, but we will skip this one next time.

A great beach adventure. Seeing the planes landing was freaky! It really seems like they are landing on the edge of the beach. Hope the photos turn out. The beer was cold and the snacks we bought we good.
