Mahó Beach, St. Maarten Photograph by Kent Miller Landing at Princess Juliana International Airport, a looming 747 is typical entertainment on Mahó beach!
Maho Beach is a beach situated in St Maarten in the Netherlands Antilles, on the Dutch side of the island. The place is known worldwide because of Princess Juliana International Airport that is situated adjacent to the beach. Incoming air traffic have to touch down as close as possible to the beginning of runway 09 due to the short runway length of 2,180 metres/7,152 ft,, resulting in very low altitude aircraft on their final approach over the beach.
Nissi #beach is a well-known sandy beach in the #resort of Ayia Napa, #Cyprus. The sandy beach stretches for 500m and the waters are clean enough for the beach to have been awarded blue flag designation. The uninhabited islet is easily reached on foot through the shallow waters and its location provides a good shelter for the rest of the beach. The islet is covered with low level local vegetation.
