Easter Sunday

What should we expect for Easter Sunday on St Maarten??

We'll be getting to the island the day before Easter, it's our first time there. Will things be open or closed? Are Catholic/Christian churches common on the Dutch side?

Thanks for any info.

There are Catholic churches on the island and so this should not be a problem. If you specify where you are staying, then someone should be able to give you directions to the closest one.

Regarding stores being open, I highly doubt that many stores will be open as this is a major holiday. I would suggest that you stock up on your groceries the day you arrive so you won't have to worry about shopping on Sunday. I am sure there will be many high end restaurants open that day as even some of the residents would probably like to enjoy a nice Sunday dinner out. I would recommend that if you would like to do the same, you make a reservation ahead of time.

Here is a neat website where you can make your reservations on-line:


If they will not be open that day, then at least you will know ahead of time.

Have a great time!
