Saba proudly declares itself «The Unspoiled Queen» referring to her unspoiled nature and inhabitants. The best way to describe this unique island with only 1400 people is to list our «have nots». Saba has no crime, no high rises, no traffic or traffic lights, no pesty insects, no crowds, no fast food restaurants, no casinos, no cruise ships. Oh, and we almost forgot, no beaches. Instead Saba's guests enjoy a choice of small, family-run hotels and private cottages within quaint villages among friendly locals. Diving is conducted under the auspices of the Saba Marine Park, a model park recognized for its success in protecting the marine environment. A six-man hyperbaric facility is located at our Fort Bay Harbor only 10-15 minutes from most dive sites. Topside Saba is protected by the Saba Conservation Foundation with only a small percentage of the island 'developed' for residential and commercial needs. Ten to fifteen restaurants offer an array of cuisine from outdoor barbeques to fine dining, all at reasonable prices. Although there is no ATM and perhaps your cell phone won't work here, Saba has a fiber optic phone system and its own ISP--hopefully a new internet cafe to open soon.
