This amazing small island is a special treat for those who enjoy the natural world. Saba really is off the beaten track – a natural green oasis in the Caribbean Sea – quite unlike other "holiday destinations". Saba is the smallest island of the Dutch Caribbean – a volcanic island, rich in flora and fauna and known as the "Unspoiled Queen" because of her rich, tropical, natural beauty – protected by island law. The dense rain forest covers the slopes of the imposing Mount Scenery. The ocean that surrounds this tiny island has a large number of distinct and unique features like underwater volcanic springs – all very exciting in themselves – but diverse habitats supporting a very diverse and thriving marine life.
Saba is very quiet and peaceful, islanders are happy to see visitors – the island feels like a small village. Saba - one of the smallest islands in the Caribbean - won the "2010 Top Island in the Caribbean" - a truly remarkable achievement for a tiny island that has no tourism "industry". If you relish the opportunity to completely unwind and enjoy the natural beauty of a tropical island - discover this wonderful island for yourself. Saba will appeal to people who enjoy peace and tranquillity and appreciate an unspoiled natural world - on land and in the ocean.
