Getting Around Saba
To get to Saba, all you require is a valid passport if you are a western
national. Currently, no international carriers fly into Saba as its
airport here is quite small. The Juancho E Yrausquin Airport sits
in the northeastern corner of the island and offers a breathtaking
take off and landing to all visitors who vacation here as the airport
runway ends with a sheer drop-off cliff. At the moment only Winair
flies daily to Saba via Saint Martin and Sint Eustatius.
If you like, you can also get to Saba by boat. The Edge from Sint
Maarten sails here every Wednesday to Sunday daily. Run by Aqua
Mania, the boat leaves Sint Maarten at 9 pm and reaches Saba at
10:30 am the next day.
On Saba the best way of getting around the island is by walking
as there are many trials out here. Presently there is no bus service
on the island and neither is there any taxi service. There are three
private taxis that run on Saba, ask your hotel or any of the restaurants
how to get in touch with them.
If you are planning on spending some time in Saba, the best way to
get around would be to rent a car. There are only tow roads on the
island both of which are narrow with tight corners making driving
tough for even the most experienced drivers. Saba’s only gas
station is in Fort Bay and there is just one car rental company in
town. Driving here is on the right of the road and you will need your
valid driver’s license from home to drive here.
