Great little stop to see Pineapples being grown in greenhouses. Nice cafe with lots of pineapple drinks and snacks, pineapple pasties were great! Lively shop too. Purchased some pineapple jam and mustard to try at home. Definitely a worthwhile visit.

The pineapple plantation contained many different greenhouses with pineapple growth at various stages. It was very bizarre to see how they develop and looked very comical (seeing a pineapple around 5 cm size) and psychedelic (vibrant colors and wonderful geometrical patterns) at the same time....More
