|'THE ROAD' IS VERY STEEP AND WINDY|
Saba is home to the Saba University School of Medicine, which was established by American expatriates in coordination with the government of the Netherlands. The school adds over 400 residents when classes are in session, and it is the prime educational attraction. A.M. Edwards Medical Center is the major provider of health care for local residents.

Hint for Cruisers:
1- To clear into the country, from the BVIs, you must sail past the commercial dock at Fort Bay where there are special yellow buoys you can use prior to clearing in. OR, if there is room at the commercial dock, you can dock there temporarily.
When we went, it was very windy and seas were pretty big so it was difficult picking up the yellow buoy. Then, launching the dinghy was another challenge because the boat was pitching. You must dinghy approximately 1/2 miles back to the commercial dock where immigration and customs are. Definitely, a very wet ride. Clearing in wasn't a problem but you must dinghy back to your boat then with your big boat, motor past the commercial dock again to the Leeward side of SABA and pick up a mooring buoy. When you want to get to shore, you must dinghy about 2 miles from your mooring to the commercial dock, then either walk a very steep hill to town or take a taxi. The anchorage is extremely rolly and uncomfortable and you'll see the same comment in some guides. It seems like a lot of trouble but visiting the Island in my opinion is well worth it.
2- From the commercial dock, it's a good walk to Ladder Bay.
