An island in the southern part of the Caribbean Sea off the west coast of Venezuela, a special municipality of the Netherlands.
Saba is a Caribbean island and the smallest special municipality of the Netherlands. It consists largely of the potentially active volcano Mount Scenery, the highest point within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Saba, including the islet of Green Island, became a special municipality within the country of the Netherlands after the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles on 10 October 2010. The island has a land area of 13 km². At the 2001 Netherlands Antilles census, the population was 1,824 inhabitants, which means a population density of 140 inhabitants per km². Its current towns and major settlements are The Bottom, Windwardside, Hell's Gate and St. Johns. As the island is part of the Netherlands, Dutch is the official language. Despite the island's Dutch affiliation, English is the principal language spoken on the island and has been used in its school system since the 19th century. English can therefore be used in communications of and to the government although there is a local dialect. Since 1 January 2011 the U.S. dollar has been the official currency, replacing the Netherlands Antillian Guilder. Saba is home to the Saba University School of Medicine, which was established by American expatriates in coordination with the government of the Netherlands. The school adds over 300 residents when classes are in session, and it is the prime educational attraction. A.M. Edwards Medical Center is the major provider of healthcare for local residents.
