18 Greatest Sand Sculptures Ever Made

Summer means more time at the beach, and for those of us who love to spend their time on the sand instead of the water, making things out of sand is a pretty good idea.

Some of us can only make mountains of sand or try and dig to the bottom of the earth when they’re at the beach, but some people are so talented they make these sand sculptures, which are usually elaborate castle designs, but also other things.
