The small island of Saba is more about getting away from it all than exploring it all.

The number of landmarks on Saba worth exploring are very few, in fact, there is only one worth mentioning.

The Harry L. Johnson Museum is located in a 160-year-old cottage in Windwardside. It once belonged to Harry L. Johnson himself, a sea captain Inside the home today are home furnishings from the Victorian era, as well as exhibits featuring Saba's Amerindian artifacts. Outside the house are some lovely picnic grounds for visitors to utilize once they have completed their tour with proprietor Sandra Johnson.

Though there may not be any other landmarks on Saba, there are still other places for you to visit. Mt. Scenery is perhaps the most recognizable attraction on the island, and there are locations along the coast that Saba proudly boasts as beaches. Don't forget about the activities that can keep you busy as well, from supporting the local economy with a day of shopping, to participating in two of the most beloved pastimes on the island: snorkeling and scuba diving.

After a trip to the museum, your vacation is free and clear. Take the time to relax, or perhaps explore some of the island's more natural sites. Whatever you choose to do, know you will do it having visited the sole historical structure of significance on Saba.
