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.
