Saint Patrick is one of the parishes of Grenada, covering the north of the country. A spectacular coastline with several fine bays faces several small islands to the north. Its most famous beach is Bathway. The principal town in St. Patrick is Sauteurs. One of the most famous landmarks in the town is the Leapers' Hill, where legend has it that the indigenous Caribs jumped over the cliff and into the sea to escape colonization by the French.

Several volcanic cones and craters are located within the parish, such as the Punchbowl and Lake Antoine.

For much of the last century, the parish was heavily agricultural with several large estates accounting for a significant share of cocoa and nutmeg production in Grenada.
