Recommended Vaccinations

No vaccinations are required for visiting Saba. However, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that all travelers be covered for diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella and polio, regardless of their destination. Since most vaccines don’t produce immunity until at least two weeks after they’re given, visit a doctor at least six weeks before departure.

Tap Water

Sabans are extremely environmentally aware. The island’s water supply mostly comes from rain gathered on rooftop cisterns, or a small desalination plant, so it's best to drink bottled water.

Visitors should be mindful about not taking long showers and not running the water longer than absolutely necessary.
