Visitor Tips and News About Driftwood Sea Serpent
Isabel sits in the front yard of a rental home right on Sandbridge Beach. Just to the left of this yard is a public access path to the beach. The beach itself is great; clean, beautiful, and uncrowded compared to Virginia Beach 15 miles north.
We found her using the Roadside America app on our GPS![Traci, 06/01/2011]
It's still there! No problems with the locals.[Angela, 10/02/2008]
There is a oceanside village named Sandbridge. The houses are all on stilts -- the kind of place that suffers during hurricanes and nor'easters. It's about a 1/2 hour drive from the Va. Beach oceanfront. Along the main road (Sandpiper or Sandfiddler) there is a giant serpent. I think, from memory, it's about 40 feet long by 15 feet high and is made up of driftwood and the like. It's really neat; but the neighborhood snoots don't like the traffic that comes by.[Sean Quinn, 09/25/1999]
