Christmas Cove is located on the west end of Great St. James, 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! The cove is located just minutes from the Over the Line marina, making it a great place to start or end your day charter! It’s the perfect spot to have some drinks or sneak in one more snorkel adventure before the sun sets!
