The island invites you to #FindYourselfInSaba - both literally and figuratively.
Saba, the stunning Dutch Caribbean is a hidden gem full of unexpected experiences, making it the ideal spot for an unforgettable adventure. With its warm Caribbean hospitality, authentic charm, and abundance of outdoor activities, now is the perfect time to plan and discover Saba. Located just 12 minutes by air or a scenic 90-minute ferry ride from St. Maarten, the island offers world-class diving, incredible hiking, and a rich cultural scene. It soars 5,000 feet from the seafloor of which 3,000 feet are visible. With a population of just over 1,800, Saba is comprised of four main villages - The Bottom (Saba's capital), Windwardside, St. John's, and Zion's Hill (a.k.a. "Hell's Gate").
On-land, hiking aficionados and beginners alike can enjoy 20 diverse hiking trails; while aviation enthusiasts experience the shortest commercial runway in the world; art connoisseurs can immerse themselves in glass-blowing, art or textile workshops; or eco-tourists can also admire the expansive solar panel fields that provide power to the entire island for eight to ten hours each day – an impressive feat that Saba completed in 2019, paving the way for renewable energy in the Caribbean.
Meanwhile, under the sea, Saba plunges below as steeply as it rises above. Thirty protected dive sites are found closely off-shore, including “The Needle” – a renowned dive site amongst the advanced diving community. Divers are required to go out to sea with the local licensed dive center; but in true Saban fashion, there is only one harbor on the island and three dive boats.
