This quaint capital city sits in a deep valley between mountains, hence the name The Bottom. The city has an interesting requirement that all the houses must be white with red roofs to create a uniform look. There is not as much to do here as elsewhere on the island but it is interesting. I like the view looking down... More

It's only about a 45-90 minute hike (depending on your physical condition) along the Crispeen Track between Windwardside and The Bottom. (Each direction has about the same ups and downs - it's slightly more uphill returning to WWS.) The Bottom is the industrial capital of the island (as opposed to WWS which is the tourist capital). Lots of little shops... More

My brother-in-law got a job at the Saba Medical School. Overall, it's a very quiet place, with nice hills on all sides. Goats and chickens roaming. There are only five or so restaurants, we had a fish lunch and it was a generous portion under $25. You can also visit the lace making shop. A little public/school library is here,... More

We did a taxi tour that we had pre-arranged from home before leaving. Communicated with the office of Tourism on Saba and Glenn the Director arranged a taxi tour for us. This great lady, Donna, waited for us at the airport and gave us a private tour of the Island and even waited for us while we hiked Mt.Scenery. She... More

It is (just) a cute little town... We ended up there after our hike. We didn't find much to do though. We checked out the church (5 minutes), went shopping at the Artisan Shop (10 minutes), looked through the grocery store (5 minutes), checked out the library and soccer field (1 minute) and had a drink (10 minutes). We did... More

A brilliant island, from small beaches, hiking, cute gift shops, a large variety of food... this little island is a great getaway! Also if you can, try stargazing at night on a rooftop ! :) all the people of The Bottom are extremely friendly and offer hitch hikes so it's not always necessary to pay for a taxi although the...

What a beautiful unique little island. Very quiet, remote and relaxing. This island almost has a Jurassic Park kind of feel to it and is defiantly for adventure seekers and looking for a unique paradise out of the norm. The only 2 complaints I have is there are no beaches at all on the island and the ferry or plane... More

Actually the whole island is fascinating for such a tiny dot in the ocean. We had a taxi driver whose family has lived on the island for generations and stayed with us from the time our ferry arrived at 11.00 until we left at 3p.m. We stopped at every conceivable vantage point on our tour all over the island and...

This is a nice little town to explore. Grocery shopping at 'My Store' is easy and the selection and prices are better than the big one in Windward Side (I forget the name). The local catholic church is open during the day and the ceiling is painted beautifully. The people are friendly, and there is none of the typical 'bothersome'... More
