Grenada, the smallest independent country in the Western Hemisphere, is 133 square miles.  Located at the very southernmost tip of the West Indies, Grenada lies about 90 miles off the coast of Venezuela, South America.  About six hundred small islands, called the Grenadines, half of which belong to Grenada, and half of which belong to St. Vincent, surround the main island of Grenada.  But even though Grenada is remote, it hasnt remained undiscovered.  Tourism is becoming an increasingly important industry on this mountainous island. 

 

Grenadas tropical climate, warm sun, and lovely beaches are genuine attractions.  That may be how Columbus felt when he first spotted the island of Grenada in 1498.  The first settlers on Grenada, however, were French.  The British took control of the country next.  In fact, this British colony didnt become an independent republic until 1974.  Grenada now has its own constitutional government that is working to increase trade and tourism.  Almost everyone in Grenada speaks English. 

 

U.S. forces invaded Grenada after a military coup in October 1983 and the execution of Prime Minster Maurice Bishop.  American troops succeeded in subduing the Grenadian Army and its Cuban advisors.

 

The people of Grenada offer tourists a wonderfully natural and beautiful spot for those who want to get away from it all.  They can stroll along the beaches and live on a simple diet of fish, tropical fruits and drinks.

 

The majority of people work in the tourist industry, and the rest are occupied in harvesting the main Grenada crops of nutmeg, bananas, cocoa, and sugar.  They are primarily people of color, with a mainly Roman Catholic background.  Even the capital of Grenada, St. George, has a small population.
