Tiny Caribbean island of Saba offers big piece of paradise

It’s a hot and humid summer day in the Caribbean and the wind is up. Just moments after Winair’s de Havilland Twin-Otter bumpily takes off from St. Maarten, the tiny island of Saba, just a 10-minute flight away, rises like a scepter from the floor of the crystal-blue Caribbean. As the plane putters toward Saba’s 1,300-foot airstrip, the shortest commercial runway in the world, I see waves lashing against the island’s rocky, steep..

Top 10 Islands

During my years of island finding, I have been to most places in the Caribbean— Barbados, Antigua, Jamaica, and many islands much smaller. But the most unusual is Saba, east of the U.S. Virgin Islands, rising almost 873 meters (2,864 feet) above the sea. It is home to 1,500 inhabitants, many of whom have the same family name: Hassell..

Island-hopping in the Caribbean

As our Twin Otter plane careens past a mist-shrouded volcano and screeches to a stop on a runway that drops into the Caribbean Sea, I’m tempted to join my fellow passengers who spontaneously burst into applause with shouts of “thank you” to our pilots. The Dutch Caribbean island of Saba…

The Best Hotel (And the Best Table) in Saba

I don’t eat lobster very often. Sure, I like it. But when I go to a restaurant that seems good, I always feel that the way to see what the restaurant does best is to order something else. The lamb, the glazed mahi, the duck. Things that require creativity. With few exceptions, lobster always tastes good, but it also always tastes the same. That was, until I was sitting in a treehouse called the Bird’s Nest above the Queen’s Gardens resort in Saba…

The Caribbean’s Unknown Island

The Dutch Caribbean island known as Saba is known for its diving, its fascinating topography and its medical school. And also for its lace. But it is also not known, and that is something the islanders relish. It’s just 12 minutes by plane from St Maarten, a little less than two hours by ferry. But light years removed. There are only 2,000 people on this rock in the middle of the Caribbean Sea, the one with just one main road called The Road and with a capital called The Bottom.

Hot hotels for couples in the Caribbean

The Caribbean’s recipe for a romantic rendezvous is tried, tested and true.

Whether you’re rekindling an old flame, enjoying quality time together or celebrating Valentine’s Day, our list of hot hotels for couples raises the bar on sweetly sensual vacations…

6 Caribbean Adventures Without the Crowds

Rule number one for outdoor lovers thinking about an escape to the Caribbean? Get off the beaten path. Otherwise you’ll be herded onto overdeveloped beaches and cookie-cutter resorts teeming with the same people you’re hoping to get away from. (If that’s what you want, a flight to South Florida is much cheaper.) Instead, touch down on one of these lesser-known islands, where you’ll find dreamy beaches, world-class fishing, hiking…
