Well, seems like the SXM "secret" is finally out. Looks like a beach in Japan. Won't be going there anytime soon. -rsa, 2011-04-18

Yes, the secret is definitely out. Glad I paid Maho a visit back in '09 before it got like this. Excellent capture of the Disney World of aviation.

I'm loving this shot bigtime! Awesome feeling. I have been there 8 days and have never seen Maho beach this busy! Must have been right before/after the KLM and Air France arrivals? Maybe there were some cruise ships at the island... It's certainly not common to have such a full beach. Jeffrey Schafer.

This spot is getting more and more crowded with every shot. It's just a matter of time until there is an "incident" and the approach area will be fenced off. imho

WoW! Never seen the beach so busy, I wonder what percentage of them are there because of the flightline and what percentage of them are just there for the sun... sad really but this thought of going there to find the beach as busy as this almost ruins the prospect of it being truely a special experience... I guess I missed my chance!

A nice sleek narrow-body landing across more wide-bodies than can be found in the deserts of Arizona!

Alright, I'll say it: nice aircraft, disgusting beach. I now have no desire whatsoever to visit this place if it stays that crowded with people. Speaking of which, I'd have no problem if it were full of cute girls in bikinis, but that many widebodies (like someone pointed out) and with the guys sporting speedos, no thanks. I'm sure there are plenty of other airports that will give an enthusiast like me enough adrenaline.

I was at the beach when this photo was taken (standing right underneath the nose) and this afternoon was particularly crowded. Apparently there were 4 cruise ships at port that day. Of course a good number of the tourists will make a visit to famous Maho Beach. Come 4-5pm the beach became almost deserted when everyone headed back to the ships. Plus, keep in mind this photo was taken at the peak of spring break during late March... it's not exactly like this all year round. I myself will be returning for many years to come! The island in general is beautiful too!
