Two “glass rocks,” contain the restaurant and a surfer’s kiosk. They activate the central outdoor plaza and ‘connect’ to the two great boulders on the beach in the distance. A corner of the plaza is dedicated to the surfers’ hangout with a skate pool and an open porch underneath that connects to the auditorium and exhibition spaces inside the museum. This covered area provides a sheltered space for meetings and events. The gardens of the Cité de l’Océan et du Surf aim at a fusion of landscape and architecture, and connect the museum to the ocean horizon.

The club offers an undiluted enjoyment of a hundred-year old virgin forest and the mesmerizing tranquility of undulating mountain ridges.
