“With oars and sails”
The beautiful and dramatic island of Saba.
This small island, only 13 square km / 5.0 square miles in land area, is located within the Leeward islands, south west of Stint Maarten & St Barths and northwest of St Kitts.
After centuries of unresolved disputes the island was as late as 1978, via a maritime limits treaty signed to be part of the of the Kingdom of the Netherland.
Saba, the “Unspoiled Queen of the Caribbean” is especially known for its ecotourism, having exceptional scuba diving, climbing and hiking. The landmass that effectively creates the island is the upper part of a dormant Mount Scenery volcano. With it’s unique biodiversity the waters around Saba is cared for by the Saba National Marine Park.
If you are a nature lover make sure to include Saba in your Leeward Island yachting adventure. The island is well situated for cruising between St Maarten/Saint Martin and Antigua.
