Saba's current nickname is the Unspoiled Queen, although we personally prefer the moniker it was given in the early 1900s: the Island of Women. Back then Saban fishermen spent long periods of time at sea leaving a large population of females behind. Today Saba is a paradise for people of all genders even though only 25,000 tourists visit the island each year. The development of harbour facilities, the completion of the island's landing strip and the building of what's referred to as 'The Road' has put an end to Saba's centuries-old isolation, so enjoy it's relative tranquillity while you can. Although many of its population are descendants of Jamaican pirates, you won't find a more peaceful place in the Caribbean.
