The parish of Saint Peter includes two islands in its territory: Guiana Island and Great Bird Island. Its capital is Parham. Antigua’s first sugar plantation, the 17th century Betty's Hope, is a much-visited historic site.
The rural village of Seatons is a 20-minute drive from St. John’s. Its proximity to North Sound—an ecologically rich and bio-diverse site that is home to mangroves and endangered species such as the West Indian whistling duck and hawksbill turtle—adds to its natural appeal. Attractions abound, including Barge Reef, more famously known as Stingray City, and North Sound Marine Park. Primarily a fishing village, Seatons is a new place of residential desirability for developers and private investors alike.
