From the Gov site.
"** Electricity, Water, and fibre now at Mullet Bay Beach **
The Minister of Public Housing, Environment, Spatial Planning, and Infrastructure (Ministry of VROMI) Hon. Egbert J. Doran announced on Thursday that a project is currently underway which will further enhance the overall experience at Mullet Bay Beach for residents and tourists who visit one of the island's most popular beaches.
The waiver for trenching works, which was approved by the Ministry, facilitates the trenching of 233 meters from the main entrance directly to the beach.
The trench will house utility lines for electricity, water and fibre optic connections by partners GEBE, TELEM and UTS/FLOW. The Ministry is closely monitoring the trenching works to ensure that there will be no negative impact to the adjacent property.
The vendors on Mullet Bay Beach are pleased that the daily water deliveries and use of generators can stop and they can now improve on the quality of service while better adhering to cleaning protocols in these times of COVID-19. They also look forward to being able to offer high-speed Wi-Fi services to beachgoers.
The project will also increase the safety and security of beachgoers through the installation of lights by GEBE and cameras with the assistance of the Sint Maarten Police Force KPSM.
Beachgoers and motorists are advised to drive with caution when heading to the parking area at the beach as trench works are currently ongoing.
The Ministry aims to continue to facilitate all public areas with utility connections. In addition, the utility meters for the vending operations at the Kim Sha Beach will also be completed within short."

Didn't say they were going to improve the parking lot. That would be a nice thing..

It is actually making parking worse right now.
They are working on the side of the driveway, which was a safe place to park, and now
It is even easier to get blocked in with the limited space and awful condition of
the parking lot.
I'm not sure we will try it again!!

And people tend to park along the narrow road which makes it hard to pass. We saw a big truck on a Sunday knock off about 3 side car mirrors as he tried to pass. Unless you have a beach at your hotel or condo Good Beach parking about everywhere is a problem.

forever--actually to me, Mullet is the only beach on the island where I think parking is a problem. And usually it's not a problem even at Mullet for us during the week, although we normally go to SXM only in low season.

When we go in May we have never encountered a parking problem but we usually get there around 10 and always park closest to the beach where the boulders are.

Scuba-we pay attention to where we park, to try to ensure that we don't get parked in, as it can happen there. Usually we don't have a problem, but we NEVER go on the weekend.

We have gone on weekends too, not holidays, and never have been blocked in. But that is in May so not as many people then.

Two more weeks.
We walked down the beach yesterday and was wondering if you were
the poster who stays past Mary's Boon. Your profile picture doesn't help.
Lol

We arrive on Wednesday the 10th. Starting on the 11th you will see us outside every day with beach chairs pulled right out into the middle of the sand, you won't be able to miss us. Hopefully we will get the opportunity to say hello to one another.

Although we have a huge deck, 2 steps off the beach, we all love to be on the beach with our feet in the sand.
