In its commitment to an environmentally responsible lifestyle, Golden Rock Resort uses the following sustainable systems: solar panels to fully power the resort; a reverse osmosis machine transforming salt water into clean drinking water with a storage capacity of 240,000 liters; and a helophyte filter used to clean dirty water through the use of reed and bamboo for irrigation of the plants and grass of the property.
A 13 square mile island located between St. Kitts and St. Martin, Statia is home to 36 dive sites, 32 native bird species, and more protected historic monuments per square mile than any other Caribbean island. Top attractions include Quill National Park, with a dormant 2,000-foot volcano towering over the southern half of the island and offering more than a dozen trails that allow hikers to ascend through thorny woods to the spectacular tropical forest at the edge of the crater; The many trails in Boven National Park that wind through valleys and along ridges, leading visitors to secluded bays and viewpoints; The dive sites of Saint-Eustache Marine National Park, which are considered one of the top five dive sites in the Caribbean, as they feature a vast array of coral reefs, wrecks, volcanic fissures, pinnacles and magnificent walls; and the historic city center with hundreds of artefacts from the 18e century.
Statia is located 33 miles southwest of the St. Martin’s Coast (SXM), a short but beautiful 20 minute plane ride to Statia FD Roosevelt Airport (EUX).
