Discover Statia on foot! Hiking the Quill and other parts of this beautiful island is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the nature, culture and history of St. Eustatius. On top of that, it is healthy, diverse and fun. That is why the clip series „Discover Statia“ starts off with hiking the hidden Caribbean treasure.
Growing playlist of „Discover Statia“: Hiking the Quill and more
Whether you explore St. Eustatius from the comfort of your home, plan your (next) visit or cherish the memories of your last trip, these clips are created for you. The main attractions of „The Caribbean’s Hidden Treasure“ are nature, relaxation, history and diving embedded in a tranquil, safe, friendly and laid-back environment.
Hiking is a perfect way to combine nature and history on Statia. One after the other, we introduce the numerous hiking paths of our mesmerizing island. We highly recommend pacing yourself along the trails. Not only will you notice more details and remnants of the past, and spot interesting plants and animals, but you also you will get the chance to connect to the locals.
