40 awesome sand sculptures

40 awesome sand sculptures

This is summer (for one part of the world at least) and we thought it’s the perfect timing to put online a new theme-based showcase. Below you can find 40 really impressive sand sculptures. The amount of details in these works are outstanding and the size of some sculptures is remarkable. You’ll have to train a lot if you want to do the same! If you know other great sand sculptures, let us a comment!

    A lot of them are made with wet sand that is put into large rectangular molds and packed down super tight, then they take the sides off and start to carve into the big block. To smooth out the finished product they use a mist of water to wash off any loose grains of sand. There’s an annual sand castle competition near where I live, and they aren’t allowed to use additional supports in the structures. Some of these are seriously mind blowing though, it’s still incredible to imagine how much work went into making them.

  • I enjoyed seeing these. Sarasota, Florida also has a yearly sand structure contest..Come see it sometime.

  • Some of these look very lifelike. Too bad it could get destroyed by the wind. They should cast this or something to preserve it.

  • Brittany

    These are absolutely breathtaking!!

    These people have true talent and I could only ever wish to be this talented!

    Beautiful work! :)

  • Very nice.
    Some are from the annual sand sculpture festival in the Algarve, Portugal, which has been happening since 2003.

    I haven’t managed to see all of them yet, but I’m looking forward to doing so…
