Statia Landscapes For such a small island of 20 square kilometers, Statia has an amazing amount of diverse beauty, not only in its landscape above the water but also in its features below the water. The dormant volcano known as The Quill dominates the landscape on the southeast whilst the north is home to five extinct volcanoes. The middle of the island however is flat and is perhaps one of the few places in the world where tropical forests are within walking distance from a coral reef, offering visitors the opportunity to experience both in the same day. www.statiapark.org Photo Credits: Cees Timmers Photography
