Saba, Dutch Caribbean

Where on Saba—the Caribbean's friendliest island—can you find the dormant volcano? Everywhere: the entire island was formed by volcanic activity (but, don't worry, it hasn’t seen an eruption in 5,000 years). Unfortunately, its molten beginning means that the shore on this island is rocky and cliff-like, not beachy. It is, however, a haven for hikers and divers looking to get off the beaten path, as the island is only reachable via a 15-minute plane right from neighboring St. Maarten.
