Just relaxing

My husband and I came here for a few hours just to relax and enjoy the view, listen to the waves. It's quiet with just a few people using the beach while we were there.

This tiny little cove on Saba just below the airport has the most amazing snorkeling and if you have your own gear you can snorkel for free. We went here three times and would love to go again. Everyday we managed to see something new.
