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.

After a day at turner beach, we headed here for a bite to eat. Seafood and wraps were very tasty and super fresh. They have a read out on a tv screen of outbound and in bound flights. Awesome. Got behind the jet blast of a JetBlue jet and what a thrill it was. The beach is really not much... More

Music loud and crowds of people! We loved the pool area and hung out there 1 afternoon. Great for plane watching and fun drinks. It's a must visit in SXM

Otherwise skip. The beach is very small, sometimes non-existent and has become a zoo. Seems like every cruise ship person goes to see the planes land. Bar has expanded but has lost the old feel. Now must even pay for parking. If you have never seen planes land or take off worth one trip, especially Air France or KLM A... More

We stopped at Sunset Bar during our tour around the island. They have multiple bars and reasonable prices. The table staff seemed a bit short-handed as the wait for food and drink service was longer than expected. The best part is the location, right on Maho Beach and the airport. They even have a listing of the departures and arrivals... More

A couple of hours either side of lunch made for an enjoyable day ashore during a recent cruise. Maho beach was always going to be a "must see" but during a short rain shower refuge was sort at the Sunset Bar for food and beer and we weren't disappointed. Portions are massive, we only managed starters of Nacho's and a... More
