This Tiny Caribbean Island You’ve Never Heard Of Is a Diver’s Paradise — and It Just Opened Its First Luxury Hotel

In 2018, an estimated 1.4 billion people took an international vacation. In the same year, some 4.3 billion scheduled flights took off to destinations around the globe. These numbers make it hard to believe that travelers have left any stone unturned in finding all the hidden gem destinations. But, dear reader, I’m here to tell you such treasures do still exist. And we’re here to share one with you: the Dutch island of St. Eustatius.

Situated in the Caribbean, tucked between Anguilla and St. Kitts, sits the island of St. Eustatius, otherwise known as Statia. The island is dominated by an active volcano and encompasses just 13 square miles. It’s also inhabited by 32 native bird species and more protected historical monuments per square mile than any other Caribbean Island, as well as just 3,000 residents, making it an absolute dream getaway for those looking for peace and solitude. And now, there’s a new hotel looking to cater to guests who want to do just that.
