St. Helens is a village and civil parish located on the eastern side of the Isle of Wight, England. The village developed around two village greens. The village is a short distance from the coast, about a ten-minute walk to St Helens Duver, the location of the island's first golf course and now a popular beach for tourists during the summer season. It is protected by the National Trust.

St. Helens was an Urban District from 1894 until 1933. In 1933 it was merged into the civil parish of Ventnor.
