Oranjestad, Sint Eustatius, Netherlands Antilles

Twelve-square-mile “Statia” is a tranquil place today, but in its heyday it was the most important depot for ammunition and other goods sent to the rebellious colonies of North America during their war of independence. In fact it was the first foreign place to recognize the United States, with a cannon salute in November of 1776. Later, its importance in the ongoing “Triangle Trade” between Africa, Europe and North America, gave it the nickname “The Golden Rock.” Renowned for its superb underwater scenery, Stacia is also a favorite spot for ecotourists in search of remnants of unspoiled Caribbean nature.
