St Lucia Map

Who says the Caribbean is all about lying on the beach and taking a honeymoon?
St Lucia is a small island stretching 27 miles long (north to south) by 14 miles wide (east to west) but you will be overwhelmed by its rolling hills that grow to form volcanic mountains and reach to the sky. The iconic Pitons rise from the waves to the clouds like pyramids of volcanic stone. This isn’t some glammed-up, theme-park holiday spot – St Lucia has a pulse. Your senses are bombarded with the sights, smells and sounds of an island that’s truly alive. 

Towns, like the capital Castries, move and shake to the sound of car horns, the smell of rotis fresh from the oven and reggae blaring on the speaker. The people are warm and welcoming and if you want a destination that will let you get under the skin of West Indian life – St Lucia is the one.

Where is St Lucia? 
Saint Lucia is a sovereign island country in the eastern Caribbean Sea on the boundary with the Atlantic Ocean. Part of the Lesser Antilles, it is located north/northeast of the island of Saint Vincent, northwest of Barbados and south of Martinique. It covers a land area of 617 km2 (238.23 sq mi) and has a population of 174,000 (2010). Its capital is Castries. 

History of St Lucia 
One of the Windward Islands, it was named after Saint Lucy of Syracuse by the French, the first European colonizers. They signed a treaty with the native Carib people in 1660. England took control of the island from 1663 to 1667; in ensuing years, it was at war with France 14 times and rule of the island changed frequently (it was seven times each ruled by the French and British). In 1814, the British took definitive control of the island. Because it switched so often between British and French control, Saint Lucia was also known as the "Helen of the West Indies". 

In 1979 it gained full independence from the British but Saint Lucia is a Commonwealth realm; Queen Elizabeth II is the Head of State, represented on the island by a Governor-General.

Languages of St Lucia 
The official language is English; however Saint Lucian Creole French (Kwéyòl), which is a French-based Creole colloquially referred to as "Patwah" (Patois), is spoken by 95% of the population. 

Music and Dance in St Lucia 
A popular folk dance is the Quadrille. Together with Caribbean music genres such as Calypso, Soca, Dancehall, Reggae, Compas, Zouk and Salsa, Saint Lucia has a strong indigenous folk music tradition. Each May since 1991, Saint Lucia has hosted an internationally renowned Jazz Festival. If you think you have the moves then you have seen nothing yet when a St Lucian wants to dance the night away! 

Food in St Lucia 
The cuisine of St Lucia is influenced by West Indian, Creole and French food. Popular dishes are pepper pot stew, callaloo soup and fried codfish. 

Shellfish and fish are caught daily. Salt fish is used in a number of recipes. Vegetables include cassava, dashing (taro) and sweet potatoes. Breadfruit is also grown. 

Fruits cultivated are bananas, coconuts, guavas, mangoes, papayas, passion fruit, pineapples and Sousa's Fresh fruit juices are available and alcoholic drinks, such as beer (Pitons) and rum (Bounty), are brewed locally. 

Climate in St Lucia 
As is the case with many Caribbean islands, St. Lucia's visitors should expect hot and humid weather conditions year round, due to the island's proximity to the equator. Fortunately, visitors will rarely feel uncomfortable as mild trade winds bring cool breezes off the water that offer some respite from the heat. 

The average temperature in St. Lucia ranges from 70 degrees Fahrenheit to the upper 90s. Humidity on the island averages between 70 and 90 percent throughout the year. December and January are generally the coolest months with the temperatures being in the mid 70s to mid 80s in degrees Fahrenheit. The summer months of June through August are the hottest. 

Travelling in St Lucia 
Bus service is probably the most common form of getting around and is via privately owned minivans. They’re a cheap way to get around, and the means by which most islanders get to town, school and work. St Lucia’s main road forms a big loop around the island, and buses stop at all towns along the way. They’re frequent between main towns (such as Castries to Gros Islet) and generally run until 10pm (later on Friday); however, there is no scheduled timetable. Very few buses run on Sunday. If there’s no bus stop nearby, you can wave buses down en route as long as there’s space for the bus to pull over. 

Renting a car gives you greater flexibility but is more expensive, and is perhaps the best way to discover the areas of St Lucia that the bus network does not service. Although the roads are generally good many of the roads are steep and smaller ones can become little more than potholed mudslides after a bout of rain. 

When flying into St Lucia you'll be serviced by two airports: Hewanorra International Airport, in Vieux Fort at the remote southern tip of the island, and George FL Charles Airport, in Castries near the main tourist area. Scheduled international flights land at Hewanorra, which has a longer runway, while flights from within the Caribbean and charters generally land at the more central George FL Charles Airport. 

Leisure in St Lucia 
In addition to the wide variety of opportunities to hike, bird watch and tour St. Lucia's outstanding natural attractions, the island has a full range of recreational facilities. Visitors may enjoy the leisurely pleasures of touring the island by horse, chartering a yacht for an evening sail or day cruise, or relax with a round of golf. For those who enjoy the thrill of more vigorous pursuits, there are plenty of places to windsurf, dive, water-ski, or enjoy tennis or squash. There are also a number of activities more closely related to the traditional life of St. Lucia, including deep-sea fishing and the weekly "jump-ups" at Gros Islet. 

Sport in St Lucia 
Cricket is by far the most popular sport in St Lucia with Darren Sammy being the first and only St Lucian to be called up to the West Indies Cricket Team. St Lucia annually hosts games in the West Indies limited-overs and four-day cricket competitions, usually at the Beausejour Cricket Grounds, one of the most modern facilities in West Indies cricket. 

Tennis is growing in popularity in St Lucia. The St Lucian hotel of the island offers two coobuip Junior Tournament takes place. St Lucia is also an annual competitor in the Davis Cup, an international tennis competition, with former Sportsman of the Year Vernon Lewis and Kane Easter having been two of the island's consistent players over the years. The Government of St Lucia is planning on constructing a Tennis Centre and something that Sporting Opportunities will be closely linked with. 

Netball, rugby, swimming and basketball are rapidly becoming popular around the island and we are proud to be working within this country as is develops it national and international sporting presence.

St Lucia Travel St Lucia St Lucia Travel
There are quite a few things to consider and to organise before you travel to your chosen destination to take part in your trip or tour with us.

Flights and Insurance

To make life much easier for you, we offer a free, personal booking service through our chosen flights and insurance partner – StudentUniverse, part of Flight Centre. They will guide you every step of the way.

Please only use this service here and do not go into one of their branches as this can complicate things for us.

Alternatively you can call them on 0333 333 9890 and mention you are considering or are going away with Sporting Opportunities and let them do the hard work. They will also be able to provide you with adequate travel insurance.

Travelling after your trip with us? Need a round-the-world ticket? Not a problem... just discuss this with them too.

Why are flights not included?
By not including flights in our trips and tours, it avoids us having to pass on unnecessary admin charges to you. This keeps the cost of your trip lower and also means you have the freedom to search around for the lowest fares and most flexible tickets that fit your travel plans. It also means you can benefit from the expertise of our preferred partner.

What happens when flights and insurance are booked?
When you book any trip with us, you will gain access to our online Travel Centre, personalised for you. In here you will have all the information about your trip and how to plan for it, including the contact details for our in-country team and address you will be staying at.

There are also some forms we need you to complete before you depart, covering areas like your dietary requirements, next-of-kin, medical information, flight arrivals details and more.

Do I really need travel insurance?
We take the safety of our travellers very seriously. You must therefore book adequate travel insurance before you come away with us – you simply won’t be able to participate in your trip or tour if you don’t. Although policies vary, your insurance must include emergency medical expenses, personal accident cover, and repatriation. We also recommend that you book baggage, personal liability and cancellation cover.

Some of the countries where we work will require you to have a visa. We provide guidance for this against the Trip Summary tab so you can check whether your nationality requires it. If a visa is required we will provide a letter of invitation, if the embassy requests this, as well as all the relevant information you will need to complete the visa application process. This information is provided after you book with us. With all visa applications it is important that you have sufficient space available in your passport for the relevant visas required for your travels, and that your passport is valid for at least six months after your planned date of return.

Please note we have no control over the issuing of visas and this is at the embassies discretion. We will help wherever possible though.

At least 6 – 8 weeks before your chosen travel date you should visit your local GP or Nomad Travel Clinic to discuss your vaccination and medication requirements. Your medical professional will be able to advise you of any recommended and required vaccinations for your chosen destination(s).You should inform your doctor of all of your destination countries, and what activities you plan on doing, and in which regions you plan to stay while you are there, as different regions and activities have different health risks in some countries.

Some destination countries will require you to produce a certificate of vaccination in order to enter the country, so be sure that you understand any vaccination requirements for your chosen destination, so that you do not have any issues when passing through customs.

Above all you should make sure you are well prepared for your travels, so that you have the best experience possible whilst overseas!

Speak To Us
If you have any questions or would like some more information, simply contact one of our friendly Travel Advisors. They will answer any queries you have and tell you what it’s really like to take part in a sports tour in South Africa overseas. You can give us a call, request a call back or drop us an email.
Book Your Sports Tour Place
Once you have decided to come away with us, you and your team can secure your place by paying a small deposit. You will all then be able to pay the rest of your sports tour fee in easy-to-manage installments.
Welcome Pack
Once we have received your deposit, we will send you a welcome email confirming your booking and sports tour with us. This will contain your personal login details for your Travel Centre – an online account full of useful information about your destination, you chosen sports tour and all the things you need to do before you depart.
Personal Information
We will ask you to provide some key information to help us create the best sports tour experience for you, such as medical and dietary requirements, any previous sports coaching you have done, and what you’re hoping to get out of your time abroad. We may also ask you to complete a police background check (CRB).
Flights and Insurance
You will need to book your flights and travel insurance before you leave, and then provide us with these details. We do not include flights and insurance in the tour fee (to avoid passing on extra admin costs to you) but our partners will help you find the best options around and you will pay them directly for this service.
Visas and Vaccinations
Next you will need to get your vaccinations and visas for your tour if this applies to you. Your travel nurse or local doctor will tell you exactly what you need. We will also provide you with lots of information to make obtaining your visa very straightforward.
Final Payment
We will ask you for your final payment 90 days before your scheduled departure date. Once paid, you will be ready to pack your bags, grab your passport and get on the plane!
Our in-country team will give you a warm welcome at the overseas airport before taking you to your accommodation. You will then receive an orientation to help you settle into the country and prepare you for your sports tour abroad with us.
