These Photos of Saba Will Make You Forget All About the Lack of Beaches

As we learned, Saba certainly isn't known for its beaches, shooting straight up from the sea in dramatic, volcanic fashion. On the coastline, you will definitely see the rocky nature of the island, but at the center of Saba sits lush rainforests.

On our recent visit, we hiked to the highest point on the island and were rewarded with sweeping views of the town of Windwardside on southeast corner of the island. Coming down on the other side, we caught a glimpse through the trees of Saba's capital, The Bottom. The view from the hills above the airport is a great one, too, especially if you can time it with the landing of a plane. It is from there that you can also see up to a half dozen islands in the distance: St. Maarten, St. Barth's, Anguilla, Nevis, St. Kitts, and St. Eustatius.
