Destin
Destin is located on Florida’s Emerald Coast, which gets its name from its beautiful, clear green water. Beaches here have extremely fine, soft sand, so if you’re a beach-walker or your kids enjoy building sand castles, this could be a great destination for you.

Everyone in your family will enjoy building their own (approx.) 3 1/2 Foot tall tower, sometimes the adults have more fun than the children! We will give you "SandCastle Success" while you create a bit of "SandCastle Envy" on the beach in Destin. Lessons are also available on the beaches of South Walton and along 30A to Inlet Beach. It's not just a SandCastle Lesson, It will become a vacation memory to last a lifetime. As a Professional Sand Sculpting Company we also offer marriage proposals, elegantly unique wedding sand sculptures, Corporate Team Building, Corporate Promotions and advertising, Festival and Event Sand Sculptures from table-top pieces to multi-ton projects, on and off the beach. less
