Home to a potentially active Mount Scenery volcano, Saba, located within the Leeward Antilles is spread over a small, well preserved 13 square kilometer area. Mostly featuring cliff faces and rocky shores, Saba offers unique diving experiences for visitors which include wall-diving and pinnacle diving as well. Although devoid of reefs and sandy beaches associated with the Caribbean vacations, Saba, featuring a vibrant eco-system attracts tourists for diverse reasons. Saba landscape which is largely composed of lush wooded forests consisting of ferns, damp soil and numerous mango trees along with an animal wildlife is taken care of by the Saba Conservation Foundation.
Known for eco-tourism, Saba is a relatively new holiday destination which is gaining recognition. Along with a small airport with flight services to/from St. Maarten and Sint Eustatius, Saba is also accessible through ferry services from these destinations. Also referred as ‘The Unspoiled Queen’, the coral reefs and marine life within the waters around Saba have been designated as the Saba Marine National Park by the government since 1987.
