A GUIDE TO ROATAN'S EAST END AT HELENE ENCLAVE,
AND OWNERSHIP FINANCING INFORMATION

. .

Helene Enclave consists of 148+ acres that include Piedra Grande, fronting on Helene Harbour The low rolling hills of Helene provide spectacular views of crescent shaped Helene Harbour, with Rose Cay and its north and south reef forming the East Side of the harbor. Looking north, you see a spectacular view of the ocean and reefs on the north side of Helene and the nearby islands of Morat and Barbaretta. A look west over the National Preserve will provide a view the Old Port Royal area. Then, when you turn to the south, you can see the mainland mountain ranges on most days.

The prevailing breeze from the southeast provides almost constant winds for sailboat enthusiasts.
There is a wide variety of vegetation that includes patches of turtle grass in the shallow water near the shoreline, along with some mangrove patches at the shoreline. Coconut palms, Almond and Banyan trees, banana plants and tropical undergrowth are at lower elevations. Oak, Cedar and Pine are among the other trees higher up.

At one point as indicated on the Plat, the Subdivision's environmentally friendly green space touches Helene Creek as it slopes down to the west and to sea level. The creek is an approximately thirty feet wide and ten feet deep body of seawater created by the Payan Indians in pre-Columbian times. Helene Creek forms the actual boundary between Helene and the National Preserve, and many Subdivision Lot owners will almost certainly want to explore both; whether they are amateur botanists, bird watchers, or have a bent for archaeology.

As you walk through the area from east to west, you will see dramatic rock formations and caves as well as a large variety of trees and plants, including wild life such as Iguanas sunning on rocks or climbing the trees. There are also a large variety of birds that include squawking lime and yellow Parrots and the loud Chachalac, occasionally caught for food. Then there is the unique to the Bay Islands yellow napped Parrot, of which only about two hundred remain but are sometimes seen on Helene. There are also the nocturnal Bats sleeping in the Bat Cave of the Subdivision during the day and roaming the area for food at night.
