An interesting structure design. I am wondering how the structure is entered... A ladder?

@Gemma Wiseman: I think it is for lifeguards, but I've never seen anyone in it ever.

Nice looking cabin, but the entrance seems quite difficult.

@Jypyä Pop: I don't think it is used anymore.

A viewpoint for rocket booted coastguards perhaps :)

@grouser: Ha ha, I don't think it is used anymore, it is such a safe beach.

Interesting place to watch the beach and boats!

@Mireille T.: I think it has a great view, but sadly I do not think they use it anymore.

A fine observation point. But how do you get up there? I like the mist background.

@Ruthiebear: Yes the view from up there would be great, but I'm not sure it is every used anymore.

I like the horizon in the background... Well done!

Interesting Building. Bring your Ladder. I can just see the life guards turning up and forgetting to bring it.
Second thoughts, I think it is used as a look out for Yacht racing

@Philnz: I think you may be right, as it is such a safe beach, but lots of yacht racing happens there.

I share the curiosity about getting up there . .

@Ronnie 2¢: I think Phil has it right, it is used as a lookout for the many boat races that happen off the beach.
