“Might be the best beach bar in St. Maarten”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

After a beer and t-shirt purchase at the Sunset Grill, walk to the Driftwood and relax. This is a true beach bar. Great vibe, funky seats on the beach, plenty of shade and decently priced drinks. The food was great as well. Margaritas were cold and delicious.
Loved this little spot.

“Friendly relaxed beach bar.”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Good place to enjoy some frozen mango drinks. They serve good looking food. The planes comes flying in just above the bar.

“nice little bar”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

The driftwood boat bar is a nice little bar to sit down for a moment and have a drink or two, the girls working here are very friendly.
Didn't order any food...
Only open in the daytime, so you can watch the airplanes come in.

“Good Position, Fast & Friendly”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

This bar is not so crowded as the other side of the beach and is a excellent place to sit, have a cool drink and watch all the traffic, people and planes. This is a bar and not a place to have lunch but a very pleasant place to stop for a drink or two.

Top tip, behind the bar away from the beach about 75 yards is a local supermarket which is great for snacks and fresh fruit if you are not into all the deep fried beach restaurant food.

“Skip Sunset Bar and go here”

Maho beach, same view seeing the planes arrive and depart as Sunset Beach, but better food, service and drinks. Tiffany, the bartender is amazing.
