Whether you visit to dive, hike, relax or rejuvenate, majestic Saba awaits. You can get to Saba from St. Maarten in less than 12 minutes with Winair or enjoy a scenic 90-minute ride over to Saba on either the Edge or Makana Ferry.
Hiking aficionados and beginners alike can enjoy over 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; eco-tourists can also admire the expansive solar panel fields that provide power to the entire island for eight to 10 hours each day.
Meanwhile under the sea, Saba plunges below as steeply as it rises above. Some 30 protected dive sites are found closely off-shore, including “The Needle” – a renowned dive site among the advanced diving community.
“Saba has previously only been known to steadfast hikers and divers; but as more travellers yearn for unique destinations that boast a variety of wellness, adventure, boutique, and eco-friendly options, to name a few; we’d love to welcome visitors and show that our island is so much more than meets the eye,” said Malinda Hassell, Saba’s Director of Tourism. “We’re excited to see travellers ‘find themselves’ in Saba, and hope to spread word of our beloved, spectacular island one visitor at a time.”
