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

Tour Destinations in Portugal

Albufeira, on the Algarve, is justly famous for its endless expanse of clean sandy beaches and ‘The Strip’ - a mile long street of bars, restaurants and discos leading to the beach. The temperatures are warm with plenty of sunshine and this, combined with the excellent nightlife, and the narrow winding streets and excellent fish restaurants of the Old Town, will provide for a memorable tour.

Alfamar Beach & Sports Resort has excellent facilities for an athletics tour.  The complex has hosted a number of international athletes from England, Ireland and Finland.  Accommodation is ideally situated within the complex, set directly on the endless sandy beach of ‘Praia da Falsia’ and surrounded by a wide pine tree landscape.  The local town of Albufeira provides an excellent opportunity to experience what the Algarve has to offer with its narrow winding streets and excellent fish restaurants located on the harbour front in the ‘Old Town’ and the excellent nightlife on ‘The Strip’ which provides a mile long street of bars restaurants and discos.

Monte Gordo gives a host of athletics training opportunities whilst enjoying an area which has transcended from a former sleepy fishing village to become one of the popular areas in the Algarve boasting a fine beach along the south coast.  With warm temperatures, plenty of sunshine and the excellent facilities available you are sure to have a memorable trip.
