This statue is even more large and majestic in person! You can't help but be in awe of this solid artwork. This really makes Virginia Beach unique! This is literally located in front of the sand and ocean. It is quintessential that you get a photo with this amazing King Neptune's statue.

Neptune is the symbol of Virginia beach and the dolphin represents Sandbridge. You will see dolphin sculptures wherever you go in the Sandbridge Area. Ask Bev to tell you the story behind these Sculptures

If you're here you at least have to take a selfie with King Neptune. Everyone does it.

It's on the board walk, right in front of the water. It's cool lite up at night. It raises over the near by stage.

You know sometimes those Grecian gods like to leave home for a bit of R&R in the American South where no one recognizes them beyond being mascots for fish stick brands.

And so, children, the legend of how King Neptune arrived to the sandy shores of Virginia Beach goes (at least according to my active imagination), where families can get in an excellent photo op with the trident man himself.

Great photo op! This is one of several statues along the beach that give the area such character.
