Eco friendly & Unspoiled

The island of Saba has a wide variety of wildlife and lush nature that is carefully guarded by the Dutch authorities. With the perfect moderate tropical climate and absence of mosquitoes, this truly is paradise!

The Saban people are truly warm and welcoming. The island is extremely clean with virtually no crime. Making Saba a worthy choice as a secret hideaway in the Caribbean! 

Saba is an island that inspires the imagination. This magical island has truly earned her tittle as “The Unspoiled Queen”

Scuba Diving

Saba is a paradise for the scuba enthusiast. Saba is one of the best diving spots in the world. The waters around the island, the seabed, and seamounts form the Saba Marine Park established to preserve and manage Saba’s marine resources for its local population. One of the dive operators is Sea Saba who provides diving courses and snorkeling packages.



Saba offers a variety of hiking and nature trails that crosses various terrain, from the shoreline to the top of Mount Scenery (Elfin Forest). Mount Scenery is the highest point in the Dutch Kingdom (877m of 2877ft) and is Saba’s dominant feature with its dense vegetation and a variety of species of unique and rare plants.

Most trails can be hiked on your own; trail maps are available at the Trail Shop situated in Windwardside. As a safety precaution, please stay on the track and bring enough water with you. Trails that can be walked from the Haiku House include The Sandy Cruz Trail (starting 200 meters from the house), and The Crispeen Track (starting close to the Queens Gardens Resort.)

You can visit the Trail Shop to schedule a guided hike, to gather more detailed information about a particular trail and acquire a deeper understanding of the flora, fauna and island history.


The love, happiness and joy of the Saban people shines through the local cuisine. Saba has a host of delectable restaurants to choose from. Enjoy some of the staple dishes on the island like the famous freshly caught Saba Langouste served by many of the local restaurants. Or perhaps the locally caught Mahi Mahi or fresh tuna steak is more your speed. Alongside an assortment of typical Caribbean cuisine choices most of the restaurants also serve excellent vegetarian cuisine choices. 

We can for instance recommend visiting Tropic’s Café in Windwardside. Open all day, also for a nice cocktail in the afternoon. Or The Brigadoon for exquisite tastes and Chez Bubba Bistro for its exclusive wine cellar.

In The Bottom, close to the Haiku House, Queen’s Hotel Bar & Kitchen is temporarily closed but in the center of the village is Island Flavor where one can enjoy the perfect breakfast and (late) lunch.

These are just a few good suggestions to give you an idea of what Saba cuisine has to offer you.
