First For Bridge

  • News From Menorca

    From Martin & Judy Holcombe What an incredible way to end a chapter. The Menorca island weaved its magical spell yet again. The 43rd consecutive October holiday was a huge success, two weeks at the idyllically located S’Algar hotel followed by a week at what we consider is one of the best 5 star hotels in the world; La Quinta. That great big yellow ball in the sky of course helped tremendously and we had almost unbroken sunshine whilst at S’Algar and only the occasional cloudy day at La Quinta. Both hotels reflect the professionalism and pride that the Sintes family who have owned and managed them insisted upon. Both managers are exceptional and the welcome First for Bridge guests enjoyed and will of course continue to receive is second to none. We were often asked to compare both hotels, S’Algar is four star, La Quinta five, therefore it is impossible; what both have in common however is magnificent staff, they go the extra mile, because to them it’s the norm.

    lanzarote-excursions North Island Tour – (week commencing 29 Jan 2015) In the northern part of Lanzarote you can find fertile green fields and most of César Manrique’s works. This local artist is worldwide well-known and popular. He created the 7 tourist centres of Lanzarote and had a great influence on the protection of both the nature and the culture of the island. We leave the port and heading towards to the “Jameos del Agua” which forms part of the lava flow which originated from the eruption of one of the biggest volcanoes. Here you can see the small blind crawfishes which normally live 1000 metre below the sea level. We continue heading to the north of the island and visit “Mirador del Rio”, one of César Manrique’s works with a splendid view of the small islands La Graciosa, Montaña Clara and Alegranza. Afterwards we visit the valley of Haría, the valley of the 1000 palms with a spectacular view. Finally we will visit Teguise the old capital of the island, you have the opportunity to visit this nice town, where is every Sunday the biggest Canarian market. South Island Tour – (week commencing 5 Feb 2015 The main attraction of Lanzarote is the Timanfaya National Park. During this trip you will discover the volcanoes, which rose in the 18th century. In this time, during more than 6 years almost a quarter of the island erupted and became a new series of volcanoes. That’s why the landscapes of Timanfaya National Park are very devastated. Crossing the unique volcanic landscape we will visit The Fire Mountains. Timanfaya still has some volcanic activity underground. Here you can have a look at some of the tricks the people from Lanzarote do with volcanic heat. For instance, if you throw some bushes into a hole in the ground, they start to burn in a few seconds. Afterwards we drive through the Fire Mountains, this ride is very worthwhile, because Timanfaya is so incredibly beautiful. After this volcanic impression you will visit the boiling pots 'Los Hervideros ́ at the southern coast. They are so-called because at this point of the island the sea hits the cliffs with such force as to make it seem as though it has reached boiling point when the waves rise up and swell into huge, foaming fountains. You will also have the opportunity to know the green lake “El Golfo”. Aloe Vera is getting more and more important in Lanzarote. The climate of the Canarian Islands is optimal for this healthy plant. With a visit of an Aloe Vera interpretation centre you will learn more about Aloe Vera. Driving backwards you will see La Geria, the wine-growing zone where we visit one of the oldest wine-cellars and have the opportunity of tasting the wine. To Book these added excursions click here!
