A wooded, five-square-mile dormant volcano crossed by a thin, winding road, Dutch-controlled Saba is one of the most unspoiled islands in the Caribbean. Not for beachgoers—it is virtually sand-free—Saba lures nature lovers and divers with its rain-forest hiking trails and superb protected reefs. Queen’s Gardens Resort is tucked in a grove of mango trees at the base of Mount Scenery. The 12 airy suites are furnished with British and Dutch Colonial antiques, plus modern touches like flat-screen TV’s and iPod docks. By day, the outdoor lounge offers picture-perfect views of the hills and the sapphire sea. By night, tiki torches light the pathways surrounding the island’s largest pool.
