Split into three main elements, the Smokin' Pineapple Beach Club is a venue that never takes itself too seriously. As guests arrive they are met by a large tepee-like structure set between rows of vintage inspired beach huts, through which they can glimpse one of the island’s quirkiest landmarks – the pineapple shaped pizza oven. Turn right and guests can dine with their feet in the sand, whilst nestled to the left is the vibrant music lounge ready with a fruit infused cocktail or a chilled DJ session. At the heart of it all lies the main bar, with retro swing seating and a variety of lounging options, as well as a kids pool complete with its own multi-coloured octopus.
