You enter a different world! You can have breakfast in England. Then you arrive in Grenada in time for a first swim and the inconceivably gorgeous sight of sunset on the Grand Anse Beach. Top this with an evening meal at a Grenadian restaurant and your holiday has started in spectacular fashion! The excitement starts as you take off from Gatwick, but builds when you look out of the window and catch your first sight of the Caribbean glistening below you. The journey takes about 10 hours but with the anticipation building this seems to fly by!
