Description: Fasten your seatbelts for fun in the sun! Sunset Bar & Grill is St. Maarten's most popular beach bar and it's easy to see why. We are right on a beautiful white sandy beach, but also right at the end of the runway of Princess Juliana International Airport. Where else can you enjoy an ice cold beer as a huge KLM Jumbo Jet soars right over your head?

Great place to watch the planes land and take off right on top of you. Google "Sunset Beach Bar" in St Martin. You'll see YouTube videos of the planes landing near this bar and the crazy people hanging on the fence behind the large jets as they take off. Beautiful ocean view. Great caribbean music. Good bar food and drinks. Topless women drink free. Fun place.

Took a trip to watch the planes land on a day which turned out to be wet wet wet! Luckily the Sunset was there to keep us dry and refreshed. Staff were great we had a beachside table which got soaked when it rained, the staff helped us move to a table under cover. Food was good and the best value for money we had all holiday.

We were on a cruise in early November 2013 with a large group of motorcyclists and this place was recommended by our tour leaders. This is a must experience at least once. We had a special of 5 beers and a cheeseburger for $20 and the food was pretty good - better than the burgers on the cruise ship. This special might have been for our large group set up by our tour hosts but it does not hurt to ask for it again. The view was wonderful and the planes coming and going were a good show! Unfortunately, there was not too much beach and very close to the rocks so we stayed in the bar area. This place was on our bucket list sice we saw it on the travel channel and is woth at least one visit to have the experience and then go to a nice beach.

this bar is on Maho beach where you can watch the planes land and take off. It is a great viewpoint, and a safe place to watch the loonies hanging on to the fence at the end of the runway in the jet wash. Food was ok but pricey, and service a bit slow, but overall an experience not to be missed. We would go again.

The food here is typical bar food, fried fish, shrimp, etc. The drinks are fantastic (be prepared that the entire island is a bit pricey, the drinks can be anywhere from $5-$10) and the bartenders are friendly. It is a perfect place to watch the planes land and take off, 'sandblasting' tourists hanging on the fence, and to enjoy a beautiful sunset.
