ST. EUSTATIUS

Overview

St. Eustatius (Statia), a remote island preserved from mass tourism with beautiful black sandy volcanic beaches, an unpretentious and un-crowded destination, offering world class diving and plenty of activities in a unique Caribbean setting.

 

The beautiful sea is all around, so go down and take a dive into the island’s munificent underwater marine life, an experience you won’t regret. This historical island was sighted in 1493 by Christopher Columbus.

 

Unaffected by regional tourism trends and fads Statia is not your average Caribbean island, so close your eyes and imagine the Caribbean about 25 to 30 years ago; unhurried and unspoiled, pristine living and reefs teeming with fish.

 

A small guitar-shaped island with approximately 4000 of the warmest and most welcoming crowd of people in the world. Now open your eyes and discover the beautiful little Caribbean island. Besides its magnificant underwater world, Statia is overflowing with history and breathtaking nature.

 

Statia day celebrations is a full week of activities known as a week of pump-and-frill.

 

At the south end a perfectly formed volcano can be found, ‘The Quill’. The Quill has eight different open trails that are well maintained for a good hiking experience. Tranquil pleasures last the longest! Rest to enjoy the especially pleasant Caribbean climate and the incredible diversity of unspoiled nature. I love my 11.8…
