Thread: 3 nights on Saba

    3 nights on Saba

    For many many years, I looked out across the water at Saba and said that I would get there someday. If the past (almost) 3 years have taught us anything, it’s to not wait for “someday”. I decided to spend 3 nights there before coming to SBH this year. Circumstances with the airlines turned this trip into a solo trip, so I decided it was the perfect time.

    I’ll start by saying I no longer scuba dive, but I do love a good hike. If neither one appeals to you, don’t overlook Saba. It is a beautiful island full of friendly people. The food there great. Of course, I had the good luck to visit during lobster fest week. I hiked to the top of Mt. Scenery the first day I was there and intend to hike the ladder the second day, but decided to do a island tour with a ninth generation Sabian and he and I hiked to the natural pools of saba, so I decided the ladder hike would have to wait until my next visit.

    Will it ever replace my visits to SBH? Heck no! It will however, be a place I return to. If you’ve ever thought about visiting Saba, do it.

    Nice! Saba is a thought for many of us, but a thought that is rarely followed through on. I’m glad to read that you are one of the rare people who did.

    I was just about to send you a PM about the Gustavialoppet. Are you running this year?

    About 5 years ago we made a 3 day trip to Saba and enjoyed its uniqueness. So close and so differ3nt. Friendly people, super serene, marvelous natural plants and animals.

    A perfect side trip or vacation extender. Especially when flights rare available to and from SBH.

    I still have nightmares from my day trip/round trip from SXM to Saba in the early 70's & that flight followed by the open door next to me on the van as we climbed the narrow road without any barriers sightseeing before a welcome lunch stop & drinks, whew ! Interesting yes when young & foolish that whole trip with visits to STT & STX with the man I didn't marry.
