To say that Saba is an island unlike any other Caribbean island is an understatement. Everything about it is extreme. It’s the smallest municipality of the Netherlands (5.019 sq miles 13 km²) with a population of 1800, but has that country’s highest point: the potentially active volcano called Mount Scenery.
No fancy resorts or sandy beaches here. In fact, no beaches whatsoever, just massive cliffs plunging down into the sea on all sides. Our anchorage in Ladder Bay was the most spectacular one we’ve ever known and gave us a taste of what we think it might be like to sail in southern Argentina.
