    Takeoffs are fun to watch too. The beach is separated from the runway by a 20 foot wide road, that's it. Crazy people try to stand behind big planes like Air France A340 throttling up for takeoff, holding on to the chain link fence. Many end up landing quite some distance from shore.

    I don't remember the name of the bar right there, but it's a good place to watch planes land. Occasionally they offer a special, ladies who are topless drink for free.

    There is a La Sonesta hotel right there too, which is a decent place to stay.

    Yes, some pilots go a little out of their way to get extra low over the beach. Not really a safety concern, just fun to watch and great photo opportunities every day.

    They should make it a nude beach and watch how low and slow some planes go!

    That bizjet at the 2:25 mark looked like it just barely cleared the fence...

    That would be Orient Beach on the French side.
