3. Hearth

The fire pit is, arguably, one of the most iconic elements of the Love Island villa, after all, it’s where every mating and spilling takes place. This year, there seem to be two fire pits outside.

Not only is the fire pit symbolic of the dating show, but it comes in handy for those summer evenings when the chill starts to set in. And for those not under the Spanish sun, a fire in the garden is a no-brainer.

Love Island contestants spend the majority of their time outdoors, day and night, so lighting is essential.
