Nature on St. Eustatius, Statia, as it is affectionately called, is unique. This island is one of the Netherlands Antilles. The St.Eustatius National Parks protect the high biodiversity and unique tropical ecosystems present on both land and sea. The total protected area covers 33 square kilometers, almost twice the size of the island itself.

The national parks system was initiated in 1996 to protect the pristine coral reefs, century old shipwrecks, and fragile rainforest and woodland on the slopes, as well as the crater, of the dormant volcano “The Quill”. Take your time and enjoy the natural beauty of our tropical island. Statia Marine Park is one of the top five sites in the Caribbean in terms of healthy corals and fish populations.
