Forget all the fun to be had on this beautiful "get away" island, just arriving by air is an adventure. Saba boasts the world’s shortest commercial runway and has gargantuan cliff drops on either end of it's miniscule 396 metres of tarmac. But don’t let that stop you from visiting, the pilots that fly in on these propeller planes must comply with very regular testing to land on the island plus the experience is both nail biting and exhilarating. As you approach the island and see the steep angles that surround it your initial thoughts linger towards questioning where a plane can land and then.. BAM! From the rubble of fallen rocks from the cliff face a flat black surface emerges and you suddenly come to the realization that the time has come. As every passenger eagerly peers through the windows to gain a view of this feat the secondary concern kicks in. "How long is the runway?" But rest assured, the sheer drop at the other end is off in the distance and the elation of living and being on Saba begins to take over.
