Small Island, Big Fun: The Best of Saba

By November 27, 2012

Follow me on:

Windwardside, SabaThere is plenty to do and see when visiting the diminutive Caribbean island of Saba, with activities ranging from diving, driving, hiking, and a whole bunch in between. In fact, getting to Saba itself is an adventure, as Saba's Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport has a landing strip of just 1,300 feet that's surrounded by cliffs and mountains. (For the faint of heart in the air-travel department, there is also a ferry ride from St. Maarten, an arguably less life-threatening trip.)

Once reaching Saba, travelers can explore the island on foot, in water, or by car. For those looking for a workout, Saba's trail network includes plenty of trails that traverse the rain forest, historic scenes, and cliff walks overlooking the ocean. Travelers looking for a more touristy walkabout can visit Windwardside, The Bottom, Hell's Gate and St. Johns, the main towns on Saba. And of course, for diving enthusiasts, Saba earns its reputation for having a wealth of scuba and snorkel opportunities. At Saba National Marine Park, there are dozens of great dive sites available for swimmers, snorkelers, and divers of all levels of experience.
