While there will be some places closed typically, most places will be open. The would be especially true in the evenings.

Ramadan just finished last month. I don't recall a single post saying anything was disrupted or different from normal. You can do a search of the many posts on Ramadan from the Search box above.

If you are in a resort, I would guess that you wouldn't notice that its Ramadan.

However, it would be courteous not to walk around eating, drinking or smoking when most people are denying themselves.

The Beach side is Ok and no changes,all bars and restaurant are working as normal days.

But will experience this in Stonetown.

All Bars and Restaurant out of the Hotel will be closed during day time.

Will get drinks and meals in Restaurants which are within the Hotel and not independent outlets.
