About the neighbourhood
If you love history, there is much for you to discover on ‘The Golden Rock’ (a name given name due to its strategic location). There are also places for you visit if you love adventure. Statia’s ecological riches, both on land and at sea, are protected within 3 National parks on the island. They are:

• The ‘Quill/Boven’ National Park. The crater contains a semi-tropical, verdant lush rainforest which is truly an intriguing hiking expedition.

• The National Marine Park is among the most attractive diving sites in the Caribbean and even in the world! If you are a diver, you would not want to miss the coral reefs, sponge covered walls and pinnacles that provide a breath taking scenery.

• The Miriam Schmidt Botanical Gardens.
Getting around
When renting a villa at Knippenga Estate, we can pick you and your party up at the airport. However, to get around on the island, we advise you to rent a Jeep. The roads on the island are a bit rough, so we suggest to rent a 4x4.
