Saint Vincent is a Caribbean volcanic island. It is the biggest island of the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines country (18 miles long, 11 miles wide, situated 100 miles west of Barbados). Saint Vincent Island is located in the Caribbean Sea, between Grenada and Saint Lucia. It is made up of partially submerged volcanic mountains. The island of Saint Vincent is dominated by the 4,048-ft-high active volcano La Soufriere, which violently erupted in 1812 and 1902. The most recent eruption was April 13, 1979 on the Good Friday. Saint Vincent is well-forested and very mountainous. It belongs to Lesser Antilles chain and has a total surface area of 344 km2, or about 88% of country's total area.
The territory of Saint Vincent was disputed between the United Kingdom and France in the 18th century, before in 1763 being ceded to the British and again in 1783. Saint Vincent Island gained independence on 27 October 1979. About 100,000 inhabitants live on the island. The chief town is Kingstown (population 25,420). The rest of the population lives along the coastal strip, including the other 5 main towns: Layou, Barrouallie, Chateaubelair, Calliaqua, Georgetown.
The population of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are named Vincentians (colloquially Vincies). There are a few white descendants of French and English colonists, as well as a number of Indo-Vincentians who are descendants of indentured workers with Indian heritage. There is also a sizable minority mixed race (19%).
