Fun times at Maho Beach
Maho Beach may not be the most famous stretch of sand in the world but it’s got to be in the running for the most photographed, or at least the planes that take off and land right over it are.
Rebecca and I hopped on a local bus yesterday and paid our $1.50 US to make the short trek there from the Lagoon. What we found upon arriving were bus loads of tourists, all enjoying the same exciting views that we went there looking for. The planes are obviously important for the tourism at Maho Beach and we noticed that one of the bars even went so far as to post the arrival schedule for the big jets.
As you can see from the pics, there are numerous signs around warning people not to get stupid and for good reason. The blast from the big jets is pretty powerful. Unfortunately for us, the weather deteriorated mid way through the afternoon forcing us to hide from the rain in one of the bars. We definitely plan on heading back to Maho Beach again on a nicer day… it’s a fun excursion.
