Madland harbour between Varhaug and Vigrestad in Hå municipality is a beautiful place exposed to rough weather. The small harbour, with two protruding breakwaters, is a popular place to experience the forces of nature from a safe distance during a winter storm.

On a small embankment above the harbour, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration has built an elongated parking area, with a 180-degree view of the North Sea. Down by the harbour, there is a new a storm-watching cabin, with a glass front wall. Here you can sit and experience the weather and waves, sheltered from the elements.

The service building by the car park has two toilets and a cladding of specially designed façade bricks that makes the building glow in the dark like a lantern.
