Fodor's Expert Review Chrishi Beach Club
Though more of a daytime hangout—especially Sunday when local families descend on the lovely beach—this spot keeps hopping into the night, thanks to vivacious Norwegian expats Hedda and Christian "Chrishi" Wienpahl. Sprawl on beach waterbeds in the shady Love Shack + Bar or on comfy chaises in the "stripper" lounge, replete with a pole for shimmying. Enjoy the righteous lounge mix (and mixology), the wildly popular movie nights, and the DJs on Sexy Saturday Nights. Browse Hedda's fun, funky HWD line of jewelry, which incorporates leather, coins, and found objects. Dine on salads, pizzas, sandwiches, and sushi as well as more substantial dishes like butterflied prawns in garlic-parsley sauce. Kids even have their own club with fresh-fruit smoothies. The adjacent Zenith Beach villa development has some spectacular units.
