Considered to be a best-kept secret in comparison to some other well-visited Caribbean countries in the Caribbean Sea, ANTIGUA and BARBUDA of course features the main islands of Antigua and Barbuda — but also includes much smaller islands close by and relatively far away (Redonda). Administratively, the country is divided into six Parishes and two Dependencies. Despite sharing sovereignty and unity with Antigua since 1981, Barbuda is still administratively known as a dependency and not a parish. The currently uninhabited island of Redonda is another dependency. As the map above shows, Antigua island's six parishes are Saint George, Saint John, Saint Mary, Saint Paul, Saint Peter, and Saint Philip. Not surprisingly, the capital city Saint John's is located in Saint John Parish.
