Saba maintains its place among the best ecotourism destinations in the world
Saba’s ecotourism product has been recognized as one of the best in the world by the Green Destinations Award program.
The island, also known as “The Unspoiled Queen”, retained its Silver Quality destination designation after an audit of 100 sustainability criteria and indicators such as nature and heritage conservation, waste management, energy and climate.
Saba was among the top 100 destinations in 2017 and 2017.
“This award is also a recognition of the destination’s efforts to maintain the attractiveness of its tourism in the future. Not only the visible and tangible aspects are measured, such as the natural heritage, but also the policies and management plans that take into account the principles of sustainable development,” said the public entity Saba.
Director of Tourism, Malinda Hassell, said: “We are honored that Saba has retained its Silver status and we look forward to implementing the recommendations as well to incentivize partners to include and promote good environmental practices as this is of a collective effort and continue to demonstrate our environmental efforts as the unspoiled queen of the Caribbean.
The award will be officially presented to Saba on September 27, 2022.
