I love this photo of Maho Beach in St. Maarten. You can watch airplanes land or take off right over your head (and yes, danger signs are posted). There are a few local bars to sit and have a drink, and because it's such an attraction, they post the times of arrivals and departures daily. I could spend all afternoon watching!
