Interactive map to Saba’s hiking trails

Saba’s hiking Trails offer a nice view of Saba’s flora and unique beauty. Some pass old ruins, some delve into caves, some go around the uninhabited side of the island, some go through the rain forest, and all offer something different. Most trails are very well marked and in good condition.

Saba Bank

The Saba Bank is a National Park, situated only 5 kilometres (3 miles) off the coast of Saba. It is a large offshore submerged atoll, the third largest of its kind in the world, and it is spectacularly rich in biodiversity. The total area of the actual Bank itself is around 2,200 km² (849 mi²), and the total reef area has been estimated at approximately 150 km² (58 mi²). The Bank is a flat-topped seamount rising 1,800 metres (5,905 feet) from the sea floor, crowned by a ring of growing coral reef on its fringes. The summit never reaches the water’s surface. Most of the bank lies at depths of 20 to 50 meters (66 to 164 feet), but a large area to the east lies between 10 and 20 meters (33 to 66 feet) and has extensive reef development.

Saba Conservation Foundation

The Saba Conservation Foundation (SCF) is a non governmental organization established in 1987 with a mission to preserve and manage Saba’s natural and cultural heritage.

Based in Fort Bay (Saba’s only Harbour) and at the trail shop in Windwardside, we are here to provide you with the necessary information to make your visit a truly fulfilling and unforgettable experience.

Committed to the belief that a stronger island economy will result from the sustainable use of Saba’s rich and virtually unspoiled resources, the organization meets the main expense of nature management.
