Discover Saba

A visit to St. Maarten is incomplete if a visit to neighboring sister island Saba isn’t included in your itinerary. And the fastest way to get there is, of course, with Winair offering five flights daily. The best-case scenario if you are only visiting this fairy-tale island with its head in the clouds and its feet planted firmly in the deep blue Caribbean Sea, for a day is to fly over on the first flight of the day and return to St. Maarten on the last flight. This will give you ample time to sample the delights of Saba.
