Details for: Saba
Mt. Scenery, the summit lava dome of Saba volcano, is seen from the airport on the NE side of the island. The sun-dappled slopes in the foreground are the surface of a large andesitic lava flow that descends the NE flank of the volcano and forms the Flat Point Peninsula, on which the airport was constructed. A steep switch-backed road extends from the airport to the village of Lower Hells Gate (center). Saba is the northernmost active volcano of the West Indies.
