St. Paul's is a dispersed area of settlement in the central part of the island of Saint Helena, and is a district of the island. In 2008 the district had a population of over 9000, compared to a population of 908 in 1998.[1] This makes it more populous than the capital of the island, Jamestown.

It is named after the Anglican St Paul's Cathedral, which is located there, and also within the district is Plantation House, the Governor's official residence.
