St. Eustatius

A volcanic island with black sand beaches, St. Eustatius features two very different landscapes. The southeast end of the island is dominated by a dormant volcano, the Quill, full of dense forests and clouds that bring rain forest conditions, while the lower northern hills have a drier weather pattern and savannah-like vegetation and fauna.
