St. Eustatius

Statia is an arid island with a valley between two mountain peaks. Most sights lie in the valley, making touring the island easy. From the airport you can walk, rent a car or scooter, or take a taxi and be in historic Oranjestad in minutes; to hike the Quill, Statia's highest peak, you can drive to the trailhead in less than 15 minutes from just about anywhere. Golden Rock area trails with breathtaking views include those at Boven (450 feet elevation), Gilboa (400 feet), and Venus Bay, which are accessible near Zeelandia Beach.
