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.

Weird and clever, worth seeing, but won't keep you entertained for long. The kids waded in to touch it, but were not entertained for long.

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.

The serpent looks very different at as the tide changes. The tide here goes out a very long way. You can then see the whole serpent. When the tide comes in part of the serpent disappears.

The serpent is an enormous sculpture that emerges from the sea as the tide goes out. You can't miss it - you can even see it on google earth! Take a camera and be impressed.

Rising out of the sea is this amazing sculpture of a sea serpent which appears and disappears with the tides.
