    At 6 a.m. we took a taxi from our hotel, The Old Gin House, to the trailhead -- well worth the money. From the trailhead it took us about five and a half hours (with a lot of resting) to hike up to the rim, then down to the crater floor, back up to the rim, and back to the hotel (stopping for an 11 a.m. ice cream at Super Burger on the way).
    The hike in and out of the crater was more of a climb, holding onto ropes and scrambling over rocks, but worth the effort to see a totally different ecosystem inside the crater. Climbing up out of the crater was easier and faster, since we didn’t have to worry about falling downhill. We enjoyed seeing all the plants, birds, and lizards.
    You have to be reasonably fit and active to do this, but not necessarily young – we’re over 70! Bring a picnic and plenty of water, and start early.

    We stayed very close, at the Statia Lodge, and you could actually walk from there to this "little fort" at the southern most point of the road in Statia, though we drove as we visited it 3 if not 4 times actually - each time the views were different as you come here not just for the fort itself but the views of St Kitts and that changes with the weather pretty fast :)

    This isn't a big object, it's basically a small wall with a couple canons appointed, though the breezes and views are what makes you not want to leave this place, so don't rush it or underestimate based on it's size - it's a very pleasant place to chill at!

    Lovely wild turtle nesting beach - but sadly like most of Statia that is not in a national park the litter around the ‘car park’ area etc was bad. The beach needs cleaning too - hopefully that happens sometimes given the turtle nesting!
    No swimming but good walking.

    The amount of sand on Oranje Bay varies from year to year depending on what the sea is doing, but there is always a small but pleasant beach area suitable for swimming at the northernmost end of Oranje Bay. This is the Caribbean side of the island, so the water is usually calm.

    The beach is dark volcanic sand, but it is soft, and the water is warm. There is some shade from a large sea grape tree.

    It's a good place to go for a swim.

    We walked 1 mile southwest from our Palm Spring Inn to visit Oranjestad's 18th C historical center to include the Synagogue, Governor's House, Museum, and surrounding colorful houses approaching this cliff-side fortress. Its full access is currently limited with 3 rock drilling crews attaching steel rods to secure the foundations; but the flagpole markers, cannons, and overall view is outstanding. We took the adjacent steep cobbled Slave Path down to read the lower historic markers and walk the "warehouse ruins" amid new tourist facilities to the present day port.
    We were exhausted after climbing back to the top, happy to arrive at the Para Mira Restaurant for a lingering and delicious lunch.

    Clearly damaged by the hurricane and lacking in resources, it seems work is in progress to restore this to its former self. Do not expect a botanic garden per se - but great views and lots of red faced lizards are at hand.
    A rough toad to get here but that may change with the big development in progress nearby.

    The Quill National Park is a must when visiting Statia and if you get a chance to do it you probably will be torn between doing the Mazinga trail (the highest peak of the Quill's rim) or the Crater trail that leads you to the very bottom - where I can't speak about Mazinga, I can at least share with you this amazing "BONUS" we have come across by when we chose the Crater trail - this huge kapok tree that has a swing installed on it :) this doesn't get any better!

    TIP: The trail is really hard to get down and it took us about 30m down, about 15m up with all the ropes/rocks etc. take your time, you will enjoy the stop here at the swing :) I have reviewed the park itself separately with details

    It was 7 long years since I had been able to return to Statia and visit with Mike/Marieke and the entire Scubaqua staff. It was even better than I remembered. It truly felt like I was diving with friends and family I had known for years. The entire staff was extremely friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and were having as much fun as their guests. You literally could see, hear, and feel the excitement each of them had as we would prepare to dive as well as the post dive discussions on things we had seen during the dive. Every step, process, and procedure was top notch and done with care and consideration for all guests.

    As others have mentioned, where else have you been that the dive shop turns into a post dive bar? Absolutely top notch and fantastic way to end the dive day having beverages with friends, divers, staff, and ownership all in one. A number of locals may arrive and you could see and feel the small town local experience vibe in full force. Everyone was genuinely happy to see people who were either first time visitors or returning guests to the island. I loved the "family" feel of it all.

    The diving itself was great too. Turtles, sharks, rays, nudibranchs (I'm a macro person myself), pipe horses, you name it. If you are lucky enough to be able to dive Blue Bead hole you will be completely amazed by the juvenile life you see in this area. By all means hunt for the beads, but don't miss the critters! Whlle a bead has yet to find me, I was blessed to find a juvenile pipe horse along with a nudibranch I hadn't see before. I hope to get that bead eventually, but his was an exceptional experience in the beads absence.

    I've literally dove around the world and I put the operation at Scubaqua in the top 2 I've experienced anywhere.

    Keep up the great work and I hope to see all of you at the end of the year for a New Years Celebration complete with jello shooters!

    No big entrance, no counter, no huge glass front or mirrors. It feels a bit like entering a nice, hidden, tiny local restaurant. After a few wooden steps you reach the yoga veranda, which is open to two sides. Sufficiently large for about ten students, it offers a breathtaking view to the north and northwest of the island. If you are a tourist, you maybe the only one on the porch - yet. You will meet different people: slim, full figured, black, white, asian - but all with the same mindset. I visit Noortje's class every time on my Statia vacations since 2018 and every time it was a great experience. The atmosphere is relaxed and focused. She always finds a proper balance between demo and assistance. A mat, two yoga blocks and a strap are provided, so you don't have to bring any yoga equipment. In her more demanding lessons she likes to build in a little challenge, which is of course optional. But do not mind - she offers classes for every level.
    If you have to refill your cup after diving, hiking the quill or simply lying in the sun ... booking a One love yoga class is highly recommended!

    Really enjoyed my visit to the Celbees bee farm! If you look for an insightful, personal and authentic experience as a visitor or resident of the island, make your you get your tour. Also they sell natural products made from the honey they harvest.

    Can't say enough good things about our experience with Golden Rock Dive Center and owners Sarah and David. They were incredibly attentive and flexible and provided us with exactly the kind of diving experience we were looking for. Although everything was laid back, there was excellent attention to detail and safety. Sarah took the time to hunt for the macro critters, our favorite, and David made sure our full valet diving experience was exceptional on each and every dive. They took excellent care of us and our gear. There were multiple opportunities for them to go above and beyond and they always did. If you are looking for a personalized, small group experience, this is the operation you want.

    Had the pleasure of attending the survey in Salt Cay! It was the first time they have done a survey there and it did not disappoint! Would recommend the shipwreck survey to anybody!
