  • Conducted as part of the trip to Nantes, the snake of Ocean is a work of Huang Yong Ping, Chinese artist installed in France since the end of the 1980s. This snake fits perfectly into the landscape and does not alter the view that one has on the estuary (form that echoes that of the bridge). Same destiny is to blend a day into its environment since it is intended to be invaded by vegetation and marine life. The walk on the embankment is enjoyable, so it's really a place to visit!

  • According to the tides the meanderings of this beautiful snake appear and disappear. Superb panorama of the estuary!

  • Certainly worth a look! Extraordinary metal/plastic structure looks like the skeleton of a gigantic sea-snake. At low tide, you can walk right up to it, even go inside the "ribs". Children love it, photographers love it. Nearby, there's also a great view on the major shipyards across the Loire estuary, with several huge cruise-ships being built (sometimes warships, too). Lastly, there's always the Saint-Nazaire bridge to look at, although that's not the highlight of the visit. Take a look if you're in the area!
  • Nice sculture available to everybody. I recommend yo go to see it on low tide, we can then appreciate a walk on wet sand along the way.
  • It's impressive and certainly worth visiting
  • Well worth quick diversion....looks great on the beach......
  • Great place
