More detail about Saint Helena
Saint Helena is a British Island That is Far From Others
Saint Helena is an island that has been occupied by various groups for about five hundred years. It had never been occupied by people until the early sixteenth century when Portuguese explorers found it. The island has since become a British property. The British have owned it since the seventeenth century. In fact, it was used as the island that Napoleon Bonaparte lived on when in exile from 1815 to 1821 when he died.
The island is located in a very remote part of the Atlantic Ocean. It is practically located in an area between Africa and South America. It is over the Tropic of Capricorn and below the Equator.
Saint Helena is a little less than fifty square miles in size. This island is one that is only home to a few thousand people. However, it is still used as an island for fishing and tobacco growth. Some crafts items are also sent out from Saint Helena to other parts of the world.
In fact, the remote nature of the island has substantially impacted the ability of the island to become notable. A big problem with the island is that it is essentially irrelevant following the construction of the Suez Canal. The canal helped to make transportation easier around Africa and as a result has kept many transit services from being used as often as what they used to be handled with.
Meanwhile, there are also worries about unemployment rates. The unemployment rate in Saint Helena has risen to where many people are leaving the island for other places as a means of making a living. It has fallen to where Saint Helena is now heavily reliant on different types of grants from the United Kingdom. The grants that the island gets are worth millions of pounds every year.
