Default St. Maarten Maho Beach Question
What would be the best time of day to watch planes land at Maho Beach?

papa60...While there are aircraft coming and going throughout the day, the majority of which are smaller prop "island hoppers" , We found frequent large jets coming and going between noon and 3 PM this past Feb (2013). The Beach Bar on Maho Beach posts a blackboard with the expected daily arrival times...it's a great view of the beach and the aircraft without the sandblasting!!!! It's a fun thing to do on St. Maarten's Dutch side.

FYI....The Name of the Beach Bar is Sunset Beach Bar

There's a web site (that I can't remember) that shows the traffic at the airport during the day that you should check. The last time we visited we arrived mid afternoon & there weren't any more flights scheduled to arrive or takeoff until 4 PM & with the traffic jams going back to the ship it wouldn't be advisable to wait.

Any update on the mosquito problem in St. Maarten? Do we have to worry about it?

I've never seen even one mosquito there. I'm sure they have them but there hard to fine.
