Yep... it's St.Maarten in the Caribbean somewhere!! I still want to lie on that beach with a 747 passing directly over me... what an experience that would be!!!!

This pic was titled as a too low approach...so normally its a little higher than this.

RE: Beachcomber

As mentioned in a previous post, there a similar beach in Lanzarote, but you don't get any 747's, largest aircraft is an A330. It still makes you want to duck as they fly overhead, but a 747 must great.
I can always remember the rest of my family getting blown in to the sea from a departing Caledonian Tristar :-).
