The place attracts numerous visitors who come to experience the midnight sun. Facing the open ocean is a rest area in the shape of an amphitheatre with a car park and service facilities. On the west side of the car park stands an intricate artwork by Marcus Raetz: a head looking out over the sea with the top either down or up, depending on your angle of vision.
