It is found northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, upper east of Venezuela and southwest of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Its size is 348.5 square kilometers (134.6 sq mi). Its capital is St. George's. Grenada is otherwise called the "Island of Spice" because of its generation of nutmeg and mace crops, of which it is one of the world's biggest exporters. Prior to the landing of Europeans in the Americas, Grenada was occupied by the indigenous Arawaks and later by the Island Caribs.

In spite of the fact that it was considered the property of the King of Spain, there are no records to recommend the Spanish at any point landed or settled on the island. Following a few ineffective endeavors by Europeans to colonize the island because of opposition from the Island Caribs, French settlement and colonization started in 1650 and proceeded for the following century. On 10 February 1763, Grenada was surrendered to the British under the Treaty of Paris. English standard proceeded, aside from a time of French principle somewhere in the range of 1779 and 1783, until 1974. From 1958 to 1962, Grenada was a piece of the Federation of the West Indies, a brief organization of British West Indian settlements. On 3 March 1967, Grenada was conceded full independence over its inside issues as an Associated State.
