Few things on this island are more exhilarating than clinging to the fence whilst an aircraft spools up for take-off right in front of you. You'll see crowds of people doing it by Sunsets and it is more exciting than watching the planes fly overhead but you are NOT supposed to do it as it is dangerous and prohibited. So...... More

My sweetheart and my hotel is right across the beach from the Sunset Bar and Grill (Royal Islander La Plage). A 200 yard walk and we are there. On their deck one can enjoy the sand and sea. The most enjoyable activity is to watch the jets coming in for a landing at SXM airport. If you have not seen... More

We enjoyed our evening at the Sunset Bar&Grill. The dining was a bit more upscale than the other places we ate during the week so it was a nice break. We started with drinks and I tried the Mango margarita - very good. The Veal Piccata was excellent and my wife enjoyed the shrimp tacos.

Located right at Maho beach.

Sunsets are easy to photograph from here. Best place for viewing sunsets with planes overhead while cruise ships are contrasted against the setting sun. Staff is kind, music, good, oh there comes a huge sailboat! Can't miss this opportunity!

Sunset Bar & Grill is the best spot to watch the planes come in to land over Maho Beach and then if you want you can hang on to the fence and be blown away as they take off. The outdoor bar is quite cool and the burgers are the best.

Had no idea what to expect. Was down here on a Carnival cruise with my oldest son and we wanted to come see the airplane spectacle. Perfect place to watch. Had cold beers and the guacamole was outstanding. Even the adjoining tshirt shop was very friendly. Don't miss it if you are coming down here. Perfect day.

We had a fun afternoon at Sunset beach watching the airplanes coming in low to land at the airport right behind you, very cool and exactly like you see in the photos. The restaurant has a nice menu and the pizzas are made in a brick oven. Go for a fun experience.

I came here just to watch the planes landing. I didn't expect I would eat the best burger on the island. Restaurants like this aren't supposed to cook such good burgers and yet they did. The drinks are ok, not great. I think they're a bit diluted anyway due to so much ice.
