Anchorage Grat Bird and Other Outer islands (Bird Island, Saint Peter Parish)

Things to do in Saint Peter Parish

Saint Peter, in the north of the island of Antigua, is a true paradise for sailing. It has an enviable weather during the European winter months. The town is tourism-oriented and, like the rest of the island, to banking, as major world banks have offices in Antigua. For example, it has many duty-free shops and yet, an elevated cost of living.

Looking from the sea, the Parish of Saint Peter is particularly beautiful. It’s no wonder that it seems especially made for sailing. Along the coast, we find many coves and bays, to anchor in, rest and enjoy the scenery. To the southeast we can see the forests of the Old Road, and if we continue sailing, the popular sugar cane plantation (Betty`s Hope Sugar Plantation) in which the popular rum of the area is made. The capital, Parham, is also the oldest city of the place, built next to the well-protected anchorage Parham Harbour.

One of the biggest highlights of this area is the possibility to reach Great Bird Island and Guiana Island easily- both are included in the parish of Saint Peter. These places are of scientific and botanical significance because some plants species and animals such as the Antiguan Racer snake, live here exclusively, as well as for being a refuge for the national animal of Antigua, the Fallow deer. These islands, together with Crump Island, are privately owned.
