A large portion of Saint Peter (Jerriais: St Pièrre), a parish in the west of Jersey, is occupied by Jersey Airport. It is the only parish with two coastlines, stretching from St Ouen's Bay in the west to St Aubin's Bay in the south. The parish is the fourth-largest parish by surface area, covering 6,469 vergées.
The traditional nickname for St Pierrais is ventres à baînis (limpet bellies), perhaps because their parish sticks to two coasts like a limpet.
The parish is divided into vingtaines:
- Vingtaine du Douet
- Vingtaine de St. Nicolas
- Grande Vingtaine
- Vingtaine des Augerez
- Vingtaine du Coin Varin
The parish forms one electoral district and elects one Deputy.
