St Martin Orient Bay Beach is undoubtedly the most sought after and go to place on the island. It is most definitely a breathtaking Caribbean Getaway. Known as the St. Tropez of the Caribbean, St Martin Orient Bay Beach is a beautiful mile-long beach famous for its pristine white sand and sparkling turquoise water.
Maho Beach is unusually close to the threshold of a runway, and is directly under the flight path, resulting in aircraft on their final approach flying over the beach at altitudes of less than 100 feet above ground level. Due to the unique proximity of low flying airliners, the location is very popular with plane spotters.

This is one of the few places in the world where aircraft can be viewed in their flight path just outside the end of the runway
This is what you have been looking for, a product designed specifically to meet the needs of our guests who want to have just a piece of the most thrilling experiences on St.Maarten/St. Martin and return home satisfied!

John was our very informative and awesome tour guide!!! He took us to Orient Bay first for 2 hours. The sand is pure white and the water is all different shade of blue. John appointed my wife the “Bartender” of our trip. (A whole cooler full of pop, water, beer and the BEST rum punch EVER!!!) He then took us to Moho beach to watch the planes land right over you head. During the ride, John kept us informed of the highlight of “His” island. He is very proud of his island, with good reason!!!
