Sarella has a reputation for insatiable curiosity and "pushing in where she didn't belong".
At some point, Sarella visited the abandoned holdfast Shandystone with her father Oberyn, her sister Tyene, and her cousin Arianne Martell. Sarella turned over rocks, brushed sand off the mosaics, and wanted to know everything there was to know about the people who had lived there.
A Feast for Crows
When Doran Martell orders Areo Hotah to take the Sand Snakes into custody, Sarella is outside of Dorne. Doran says that he prays she will show more sense than her sisters, and tells Areo to "leave her to her game".
It is widely believed that Sarella Sand is in disguise in Oldtown as the novice Alleras, studying for a maester's chain. The name Alleras is Sarella backwards, and Alleras ("the Sphinx") bears a resemblance to Oberyn Martell. Furthermore, disguising herself as a man to learn the secrets of the maesters would be in keeping with what is known of Sarella's character.
