4. Maho Beach, St Maarten, Caribbean

What should be called Runway Beach is known as Maho Beach in St Maarten in the Caribbean. As planes land at the Princess Juliana International Airport, beach lovers will literally be able to feel the wind in their hair as the jumbo jets sweep really low, just metres away from their beach umbrellas as they descent to the runway. Adding to the flavour of this weird beach, the bar broadcasts the transmissions between air traffic control and the pilots to everyone on the beach.
