The beach, in proximity to the island’s Princess Juliana Airport, is so close to the runway that it seems like beachgoers can touch the giant jets while landing and taking off. The force from the plane’s engines is so high that it can likely blow away people on the beach.

Maho Beach is the world’s only site where visitors can enjoy the sun, sand, sea, while being right underneath a flight path.

And now, Chinese tourists are slowly starting to flock to the Caribbean islands, including St. Marteen, as they look beyond the pristine waters of the Maldives and the Philippines.
