St. Eustatius

The hidden jewel of the Carribean

May, 2019

Days can be filled with diving the wrecks, walls and reefs that make for a diverse diving experience.  The dive sites are just minutes from shore and offer healthy reef systems and large wrecks to draw in the bigger fish.

Statia is an island that offers the chance to step back in time. There is snorkeling along the remains of an 18th century pier with cannons. Scuba divers may have the opportunity to find 17th century blue glass beads on a dive. 

St. Eustatius, or Statia, is a Dutch island located in the Caribbean.  It is the perfect getaway from the busy life or resorts filled with tourist.

Photographers will enjoy the view above and below the water. The dive sites will offer a chance for photos of tiny critters, seahorses, flying gurnards and 5 ft turtles. Bring all of your lenses!!

Historians will enjoy the guided tours from the St. Eustaius Historical Foundation or may enjoy looking through the dirt for pieces of glass and pottery from another era. The streets are still cobblestone in many areas and many buildings are made of old brick.  

A beautiful hike will bring you to the top of the Quill, a dormant volcano.  The more adventurous can hike down into a rainforest in the Boven National Park.
