St. Eustatius

St. Eustatius, also known affectionately to the locals as Statia or Statius, is a Caribbean island and a special municipality of the Netherlands. The island is saddle shape, with the 602 meter-high dormant volcano Quill to the southeast and the smaller pair Signal Hill/Little Mountain to the northwest. Three National Park areas protect the high biodiversity and unique tropical ecosystems present on both land and sea. Unaffected by regional tourism trends and fads St Eustatius is not your average Caribbean island, so just close your eyes and imagine the Caribbean 25 or 30 years ago.
