History, Art, Flamingos

The Landhuis Jan Kok dates from 1840, when it served as the landhouse for a plantation mainly devoted to salt harvesting. Its name derives from Jan Kok, a slavemaster notorious for his harsh and inhumane treatment; some say his ghost still roams this property.

So there's some dark history here, but the present-day picture's a brighter one: Visiting the landhouse today and reflecting on its past, you can also enjoy the artwork of Nena Sanchez (who operates a galley here) and gaze out over the St. Marie Bay salt flats, often home to gaggles of flamingos.
