You may or may not know that beautiful Barbados is divided into eleven equally exquisite parishes; the Parish of St. Peter, named after Christian Apostle and patron saint, Saint Peter, is a true tourist hotspot and is the ideal place to indulge in a luxury villa getaway.
Perfectly peaceful but still plenty to do
Located in the north of Barbados, the Parish of St. Peter forms as part of Barbados’ “Platinum Coast,” surrounded with white sand beaches and gentle azure waters. Its rolling hills are adorned with sugar cane, which used to be the island’s chief cash crop during its colonial period.
St. Peter is home to Speightstown, which was Barbados’ first commercial centre. Today, Speightstown attracts locals and tourists alike and is busiest on weekends when people visit the Parish to do a spot of shopping. If you’re visiting this area you may notice several streets lined with stalls, a perfect opportunity to pick up some fresh fruit whilst you stroll along the bustling streets.
St. Peter is also home to a medley of attractions, including Farley Hill National Park, which is a ruin of Georgian mansion, nestled high up on a hill overlooking Barbados’ Atlantic coast. Farley Hill is used as a scenic picnic area, wedding venue and is also the ideal place to take the camera; the scenery here is simply breath taking, which is why this area is such a sought-after spot.
You may also stumble across Barbados Wildlife Reserve whilst in the Parish, which is just across the road from Farley Hill. It is a monkey sanctuary for Barbados Green Monkeys and is a great place to take the little ones.
