Great St James/ Christmas Cove

Helios Christmas Cove Great St James

Located on the west side of Great St James, Christmas Cove is a haven for sailors and yachtsmen as its protected from the wind and waves of the Caribbean Sea. Legend has it that the reason for the name “Christmas Cove” is because Christopher Columbus had to anchor his boat there on Christmas Day, to ride out a storm. Christmas Cove’s crystal blue waters provide a great snorkel experience with diverse wildlife such as conch, sea turtles, and even the occasional spotted eagle ray!
