24 Striking Sand Castle Creations

From Abstract Beach Art to Monumental Sand Structures

— May 16, 2014 — Life-Stages
Summer is nigh for those living in the Northern Hemisphere and for many that entails countless of trips to the beach for some much needed sun, surf and sand; the latter can prove even more inviting thanks to these sand castle creations. Although it might be daunting to undertake building such structures out of shifting grains of sand, it would be hard to resist giving it a go.

Whether building classic castles or sprawling suburban settings and even something little more abstract, these sand castle creations provide a slew of inspiration. Perhaps a person might even be brave enough to create an original, one worthy of a sand art competition. Thankfully for those not quite as enthused, there are ready-made molds as well.
