World's craziest beach


One of my favorite beaches (right after French Polynesia, the Maldives and those at Palawan, Philippines) must be Maho Beach on the caribbean island of St. Maarten, Dutch West Indies.

It has the unique privilege (world-wide!) of an airport strip located just after the beach ends and thus sees planes landing literally meters above sunbathers' heads.

But the real fun part of it all is siting at the adjacent Sunset bar, drinking an ice cold lager and watching idiots standing on the beach when a plane takes off. The jet blast swipes everyone to the sea, together with their tropical drinks and expensive cameras.

If you want to see it for yourself just click here and here.

Ah, the fun of ignorance.
