St maarten Sunset beach
Maho Bay was our
favorite swimming beach because of the soft white sand,
easy access. St. Maarten and St. Martin.
Maho Bay is on Dutch Sint Maarten next
to large hotel complexes, airport.Maho Beach
is facing the west of the Caribbean sea, so sunset views
are great, but sometimes obstructed by approaching airplanes
landing at close by Princess Juliana airport (SXM).
Maho Bay has a sparkling beach ringed
with seagrapes and shaded by palm
tree. The beach has several nice hotels
and restaurants, so it's convenient to go to those closeby
facilities such as Caravanserai Resort, Cheri's
Cafe, Maho's Beach Resort
Airport Juliana - caribbean beach
The area of Maho Beach Resort,
close to Juliana Airport, has experienced
and experiences a tremendous commercial boost.
You can find there some Caribbean luxury
shopping and great restaurants open till late
at night. To have a really good evening,
the Casino Royale Theater is the best
place with the presentation of internationally famous
shows all the year.
Don't forget to go inside the Casino
itself, one of the most famous and popular in the island.
The building of a brand new hotel a couple of years
ago is the sign of the dynamism of this sector like
the opening of the Fashion District Italin Outlet.
Mainly quiet during the day time, the Maho
area comes alive with explosions of lights, colors and
animations at night
For example, you will see local dancers with their costumes
in the street.
