Watching a jumbo jet land while snorkeling
There aren’t many places in the world where you can watch a jumbo jet land only a few feet above your head as you snorkel around a reef.
Well this is very possible at Maho beach in St. Maarten thanks to the very famous Juliana airport runway!
Dozens of brave bystanders/beach goers will simply stand on the beach as huge planes fly overhead making their final approach to the runway.
What separates the runway from the beach and visitors? A simple little fence.
Anyone standing on the beach must very careful especially when planes are about to take off as you could get jet blasted!
St. Maarten is a fun Caribbean island for many holiday-goers due to all its beautiful beaches, busy night-life and great St. Maarten excursions!
