PlaceS of Interest
Saba Artisan Foundation
Lace work is a popular activity for islanders and exhibits of their work can be found in The Bottom’s
Saba Art Foundation. Although lacework is by far the more popular activity, exhibits of beautiful,
local paintings and ceramics are also on display. For those visitors who enjoy shoppping, the
foundation also has a shop where similar items like those on display can be bought, allowing
visitors to take part of the island’s culture home with them.

At one time Saba’s only port was
served by a customs house several
hundred steps up the Cliffside from
what became known as Ladder Bay.
Although today accessing the island
is not so tiring or dramatic, visitors
often opt to climb the Ladder in
order to experience what island life
used to be like and also to enjoy
the views the steps offer of the bay.
With its twists and turns, the ladder
also offers a glimpse of how nature
manages to cling to rocky cliffs.
