We just tried to drive by Mullet Beach Easter Monday afternoon. If you are ever on the island on Easter Sunday or Monday ( also a holiday here), do not try to drive the road from Maho to Cupecoy! Going to the beach on the Easter holiday weekend is a favorite pastime for locals on SXM. They park everywhere, literally everywhere! The road is lined with big boulders to keep cars off the "golf course", but somehow they find ways to get around the trees and boulders and park on the side of the "fairways". Mostly, they park along the side of the road, despite the boulders - which makes the road even narrower than usual. It took us 45 minutes to get from the Starz casino to Maho. We passed a large construction truck going the other way, as well as a tour bus( "good luck!"). What a mess! Word to the wise , do not try to drive this road on these holiday days. If you want to go to the beach, walk, you will get there faster. Some folks camped out on the beach all day yesterday, ,last night, and today, according to the local people we talked to today.

This is traditionally one of the biggest and most celebrated holidays on the island each year. We came close to getting completely boxed in at Friars Bay years ago by the Easter holiday revelers and we learned it's either a day to walk to Mullet or remain at our Towers resort pool until the holiday is done.

And tomorrow the plastic trash bag people will most likely be amassing in big numbers at Mullet to clean up the debris left behind by the revelers. We've taken part in the clean up more years than I want to remember. I don't remember it being this way when we first started visiting over forty plus ago but it's sadly the norm today. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duh.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duh.gif" alt="" />

I have no problem with whoever is celebrating the Easter Holiday at the various beaches. What I do have a big problem with, are the people who cannot either walk to a trash bin or take what they brought in with them out. Why should anyone have to walk the beach and clean up after these people. What kind of people throw trash on the beautiful beach they have the honor of being able to have access to???

Agreed. That's why so many who live in or near or regularly frequent this beach show up the day after the holiday with trash bags in hand. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Yikes.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Yikes.gif" alt="" />
