Destination guide

Saint Peter, Barbados holds the key to the Platinum Coast paradise

A palm tree–fringed coastline, pristine sandy beaches, and crystal-clear turquoise waters—they're all here waiting to be enjoyed. Part of the so-called "Platinum Coast," the parish of Saint Peter pulls in sun worshippers and globe-trotting celebs by the bucketload. Delve deeper to discover mesmerizing wildlife, a community with a rich history, breathtaking scenery, and top eateries offering the freshest fish and oceanfront dining. Try your hand at scuba diving, meet the island's green monkeys, or join in the fun at one of Barbados' annual festivals. Saint Peter vacation rentals offer access to all these and more.

Things to do

A deep dive into Saint Peter's rich culture

The coastline of Saint Peter is its biggest draw, but step away from the beach and you'll discover a world of fascinating culture waiting to be explored. Arlington House Museum occupies a restored 18th-century property and offers a glimpse of times gone by. Have your camera handy if you're passing the seafront at Speightstown, where you'll find an 80-foot mural adorning the side of Jordans Supermarket. If your gang is fond of a party, time your visit to coincide with the annual Barbados Food and Rum Festival, which will ensure you're heading home in high spirits.


Don't turn up at Saint Peter's gates without your shades and sunscreen

Holidays in Saint Peter are all about getting some sun, so whether you're planning to hit the beach or enjoy a dose of Bajan culture, you'll want to keep your sunblock topped up and your shades handy. Thanks to the trade winds though, things don't tend to get too hot. Temperatures tend to peak in the mid- to high-80s throughout the year, and the mercury doesn't usually fall below the low 70s. If you want to avoid the risk of showers dampening your mood, visit in the dry season between December and April. Book between June and August to get the best deals on Saint Peter vacation rentals.

Natural features

Meet a menagerie of locals at Barbados Wildlife Reserve

A visit to Barbados Wildlife Reserve is certainly in order if you're interested in getting up close and personal with some local residents. Part of this 4-acre mahogany forest lies within the parish, providing a home to parrots, green monkeys, iguanas, and caimans. Things are just as exciting under the water. Arrange a diving session to explore coral reefs in the Caribbean Sea and meet underwater species like green sea turtles, nurse sharks, and seahorses.
