Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

The Burleigh Travel Team

Saint Lucia Sports Fam Trip May 2014

Burleigh Travel's Jordan visits to Saint Lucia to find out what's hot and what's not in this island paradise

Saint Lucia Sports Fam Trip May 2014

As part of Burleigh Travel’s continued approach towards delivering unbeatable sports tours and a high level of customer service, I recently travelled to Saint Lucia on an 8 day sports familiarisation trip to gain a greater understanding of the sporting facilities, accommodation and activities that are on offer on this gorgeous and majestic island and high quality sports tour destination.

The excursions and day trips that can be included in a sports tour itinerary are second to none, giving you the opportunity to gain new experiences in front of a breath taking scenery. Zip lining, segway and snuba are just a few of the varied activities on offer for those who are looking for a mixture of both an adrenaline rush and the opportunity to see wildlife such as octopuses, sea horses and parrots; I had the pleasure of enjoying many of these activities during my trip.

Jordan's Sports Tour Fam to Saint Lucia 2014

I discovered that Saint Lucia is a very safe environment for a sports tour making it a perfect tour destination for junior, school or adult sports teams and the locals are very friendly and helpful and are delighted to offer their warm Caribbean welcome to sporting tourists.

As well as enthralling day trips. you can also spend time relaxing on one of the many idyllic beaches along Saint Lucia's coastline due to their "No Private Beaches" law, giving you the choice of the famous white sandy beach or the chance to be more adventurous and visit a volcanic black sand beach.

On a football or cricket tour to Saint Lucia,you can have the opportunity to play a fixture in the Beausejour Stadium, a first class sporting venue with a seating capacity of 20,000, that has hosted the likes of Michael Vaughan’s England and Michael Clarke’s Australia. It was also a key venue in the 2014 football World Cup qualification process, hosting matches in the CONCAF group.

Sports Tours To Saint Lucia Beausejour Stadium

Through their winning bid to host the Junior Commonwealth Games in 2017, Saint Lucia are currently in the process of developing their sporting facilities meaning they can currently host sports tours the following sports:

  • Football
  • Cricket
  • Netball

During my time on the island, I visited a number of the high quality hotels and resorts that we include in our Saint Lucia sports tour packages, which when combined with fantastic activities and picture postcard beaches will ensure your sports tour to Saint Lucia is am unforgettable touring experience for your team.

I would highly recommend Saint Lucia as a sports tour destination to any touring team or school and if you are interested in touring here or have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me on 01453 847887 or [email protected] to chat about my first hand experiences.

Thank you to the St Lucia Tourist Board and British Airways for offering me this fantastic opportunity to visit an island paradise and top quality sports tour destination.
