The small island of Saba in the Caribbean measures just 13km² and is home to around 1.800 inhabitants. It consists largely of the potentially active volcano Mount Scenery. Saba, unlike many other Caribbean islands, has no beaches and hence escaped the typical ‘sun-sea-sand’ tourism development as seen elsewhere in the Caribbean. Its rugged slopes are covered with lush fauna which can be explored through a network of guided hiking trails. Under the water line an outstanding and intact ecosystem provides many opportunities for quality scuba diving and snorkeling. Diving is conducted under the auspices of the Saba Marine Park, a model park recognized for its success in protecting the marine environment.
