Geographical location


Saba is a small island in the Caribbean. It has just under 2000 inhabitants. Saba was one of the Netherlands Antilles, which was raised in 2010, and now belongs to the Windward Islands, which in turn form part of the Lesser Antilles.

The nearest neighbouring island is Sint Eustatius, about 19 miles south-east of the Caribbean Sea. St. Kitts and Nevis is about 31 miles away in the same direction, St. Barth is also 31 miles away in northeast direction, the same applies to St. Maarten.

License Information available under 'Proof of Image Sources' Saba has the typical Caribbean climate, where it is very warm all year round and the temperatures fluctuate only slightly. In the summer months (JuneSeptember) average temperatures of 28 °C are reached, in winter it is still 26 °C. Also the fluctuations of the temperature during the day are small, even in winter it is usually still above 20 °C at night.

The water temperatures also vary between 26 °C and 29 °C. Please note, however, that there is no beach on Saba where you can swim.

So the weather is very nice and pleasant all year round, with an average of 8 to 9 hours of sunshine per day.

When to go to Saba?


Saba is a holiday destination that can be visited all year round. As it can get very warm in summer for European standards, we recommend the winter, spring and autumn months as the best travel season, because it is then at least a little cooler.

Highlights of the island


Saba is best known for its airport, Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport. It is home to the world’s shortest commercially used runway, which is only 400 metres long. No long-haul aircraft land on Saba, only small propeller aircraft of the airline Winair, which take off from the neighbouring Caribbean islands.

Saba is a volcanic island. Mount Scenery volcano can be climbed on a climbing path (which consists of over 1000 steps and takes about 90 minutes) and offers beautiful views over the island and the Caribbean Sea as a reward at the two peaks. Saba belongs to the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Mount Scenery is thus officially the highest elevation of the entire Netherlands.
