To get to Statia you have to fly to St. Maarten and take a short flight with Winair. Why not spend a day or two in St. Maarten and take a tour with the excellent Sea Grape Tours? We highly recommend them.

Once here, do not miss the opportunity to learn about Statia’s rich history with a walking tour of the historical core, guided by experts Gay Soutekouw and Walter Hellebrand.

For general information about the island, where to eat and stay, car rental and so on, the St. Eustatius Tourism Development Foundation is at your service.
