Maho Bay Saint Maarten’s main resort area

Maho Bay, on the southwestern shore, is Saint Maarten’s main resort area. It feels a bit like the Las Vegas strip: while little more than a block long, its dense with multi-storey buildings, exclusive jewelers, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and a huge resort and casino.

Maho Bay could be said to have a nice enough beach – if it wasn’t at the very end of the airport runway. And it’s not as if beach goers can simply pretend it’s not there – the area is even marked with a sign warning that ‘low flying and departing aircraft blast can cause physical injury!
