Facilities and activities

Just as in the bottom of an empty shell, a resident is led by imagination, separated from the world in touch with total relaxation at the reach of some sort of structural comfortable sea floor. The natural form concept gives the impression of residing underneath three large boats positioned upside down on the shore or even more tastefully presented through its wooden skeleton-like arrangement, one might ask whether they would be residing temporarily into the belly of a whale. Part of the fishing folklore in the region historical pride, and to celebrate enthusiastically the newly thoughtfully conceived facility, the people have named the building: “The Three Whales”.
