Beautiful island, two connect on low tide w/ a sandbar. Plenty of flowers around and crystal clear water at the pier about 50' deep and can see the bottom. Shark or two may be visible also.

with the exception of the hilarious village near the 'port', the island is a jungle surrounded by heavy surf. it punishes the weak, stupid and unprepared. and don't believe them when they tell you there are no alligators.

However, today there now exists one tripadvisor review of Isla Saboga submitted by a lscott35142 of Shelby Alabama for a trip taken during March 2011 and submitted on... More
