Saba Island

Saba is quite well suited for various types of hiking. The most popular excursion on the island – from Wyndvardside to the top of Mount Sceret (accurate 1064 steps). From the top offers a fantastic view of the magnificent tropical and pseudo-alpine vegetation of the surrounding area, and the trail itself passes through the secondary rainforest with fern "Ear Elephant" and numerous palm trees, on the slopes of an ancient volcano with its unique fertile soils, past the isolated Mountain Cottage or the desert village of Krispen (just 2-2.5 hours the excursion trail will pass through 6 natural complexes inhabited by more than 70 species of living beings, which for countries in the region quite unusual).

Although Saba practically does not have beach districts, anywhere in the island you can find some secluded cove, in which you can easily swim (however, sharp fragments of rocks and corals, as well as strong currents make this occupation quite risky on most coast). More or less safe can only be swimming in Wells Bay Bay on the North-West Bank of the island and in the Bay Bay Bay.
