These Saba Photos were taken in 2014 when I was visiting St. Maarten. From there you can either take the ferry, or the 15 minute flight with WinAir. I highly recommend taking the plane, as the landing approach is one of the best on earth! Saba is known among aviation fans as the shortest commercial runway in the world. Only the best pilots can land the small Twin Otter planes on this short runway and the flight alone is an awesome experience. Once you are there you can do two things on this very small island: hiking or diving. I did the first one and climbed the 1.064 stairs to Mount Scenery to the top of the island. This hike will take you through beautiful rainforest where you can spot interesting plants and animals. I even managed to find a snake near the trail – quite an experience. Afterwards I went down to “the ladder” trail and covered more than 800 meters of altitude in one hiking day. Although the island is extremely small, I can recommend a visit!
Where to take the best Saba Photos?
The best Saba Photos can be shot during your hikes: by taking different trails you will spot beautiful panorama views and highlights of the Caribbean rainforest. Climbing Mt. Scenery also offers you plenty of great views; keep in mind though, that the peak is covered in clouds most of the time. When the clouds open up, the view is incredible! When you’re flying into Saba, some of the best Saba Photos can be found when approaching the island with WinAir.
