This is a small historic site on the southern end of Statia. Great views of St. Kitts and Nevis. Really windy, which is nice on a hot afternoon.

You can't go to Statistics without visiting the fort. It is well groomed& preserved. It stood up to 2017s devastating hurricanes pretty considering the impact of them on the rest of the island...a testament to its strength. The site also surprised me with its link...More
