Amazing sculpture on the beach that you can see/visit/touch when the tide goes out. Great fun for the kids, must be at least ten feet tall

We went along to see this as its not something you find on a beach everyday. We went as the sun was setting and the tide was going out to take some pictures... It is a sculpture and not something to play on if you...More

Ok for twenty minutes or so if you are in the area. It is worth noting that the overall effect will alter with the tide.

I have to say it was a surprise to spot this serpent even though we’d plan to visit it. You underestimate its size on the internet. It’s enormous! Amazing structure. We enjoyed watching the tide come in and start to hide it. Would have loved...More

Every year I go to look at this. Depending on the tides you can see it from the bridge. Also depending on the tides the amount of the serpent you can see changes.

The serpent rises out of the sea as tide goes out. Must see if in area. Nearby restuarant serves excellent lunch.

This monster is along side a very easy, flat walk from Mindin South toward St Brevin. Good views of St Nazaire. This beast is on the sea edge and is fascinating. "No climbing" is the rule.
