About this Article

The small propeller airplane lands quickly and softly, like a butterfly, on one of the world's shortest commercial runways on the rain forest-capped island of Saba, which rises stunningly out of the Caribbean. It won't take long for visitors to see why the sign outside declares: "Welcome to The Unspoiled Queen." Plus, it's a diver's paradise.
