These St. Maarten Photos were taken by me in 2014. I flew in with Delta from New York which was quite inexpensive. The main reason for me was to go to Maho Beach: this famous beach is know for being so close to the runway that planes fly extremely close over your head! This is the best spot to take photographs on this Caribbean island and I really enjoyed my time there. You should also get a rental car (quite cheap) and discover the island on your own. The distances on St. Maarten are not that big, so it’s easy to get around. Check out Philipsburg and the famous front road, and also head to Marigot for a day. The view from Fort St. Louis above the city is fantastic!
Where to take the best St. Maarten Photos?
The best place to take St. Maarten photos is Maho Beach! The planes landing are just some feet above the beach, which creates awesome photo opportunities. Head to the local beach bar nearby where you will find a schedule of arriving flights. Also departing planes are great to photograph, as the jet blast blows off the sand (and people!) from the beach.
