Maho Beach

Maho Beach is a beach situated in St Maarten in the Netherlands Antilles, on the dutch south side of the island.
Due to the fact that aircraft (including large passenger airliners such as Boeing 747s) fly very close over the beach it is very popular with plane spotters.

The local government warns that becoming too near of departing and arriving aircraft can "result in serious injury or death." It is one of the only places in the world today where you can view aircraft in their flightpath virtually just outside the end of the runway.
