For someone looking for something different in a Caribbean island, Saba may well be the place for you. Saba is a small island that has just became a municipality of the Netherlands after the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles on October 10th, 2010. At only five square miles it makes Saba the smallest of the Netherlands’ Caribbean islands.
Saba is home to a now inactive volcano, known as Mount Scenery. The island’s flora and fauna have helped it to develop into a center for eco-tourism. Many tourists visit Saba to climb the mountain, hike and scuba dive. The quality of the coral formations in Saba is said to make it the best island in the area for diving and the island has the benefit of hyperbaric facilities in the event of a diving emergency.
