Windwardside is the second largest town on the island of Saba,[1] aptly named for being on the windward side of the island.

Geography[edit]

The hike up the stairs to the top of Mount Scenery can begin from the road just outside Windwardside.

Tourism[edit]

Two banks and several dive shops as well as multiple grocery stores, gift shops, etc. are located here. There is also a maritime museum full of Saban history. Windwardside village also has several hotels and inns which serve mostly tourists who come to the island to dive and enjoy the Saban nature.[1]
