Saba is a 5-square-mile fairy-tale isle that is not for everybody. If you are looking for exciting nightlife or lots of shopping, forget Saba, or make it a one-day excursion from St. Maarten. There are only a handful of shops on Saba, even fewer inns and eateries, and the island's movie theater closed with the arrival of cable. Beach lovers should note that Saba is an essentially beachless volcanic island: Steep cliffs ring the isle and plummet sharply to the sea. Nevertheless, it's a paradise for hikers and divers. Goats line the roads and tidy houses with red roofs line the hillsides amidst the bromeliads, hibiscus, orchids, and Norwegian pines. Any more questions? Make another posting.
