Saba is a diver's delight. Rising steeply from the azure sea, this tiny island in the Caribbean is a magical experience far away from the cares and worries of today's hurried world. Four small villages are as quaint and charming as the gentle, friendly manner of the Saban people, descended from hardy 17th century pioneers. Visitors feel they have stepped back in history, yet many modern luxuries are here to be enjoyed. With its Dutch heritage and the legacy of early Celtic settlers and pirates, the island enjoys a culture of laid -back charm. Saba is a monument to nature's best, both above and below the ocean's surface. The famous Saba Marine Park is second to none and this island is a magical place for scuba diving, hiking and nature lovers.
