Got the idea for the sandcastle lesson having seen everyone's reviews on TripAdvisor and thought it would be a great experience for the kids - and us - and can honestly say it was one of the highlights of our trip.
Whilst there was a mix up about the meeting point (make sure you check this with before you set out) they were quick to sort this out and very apologetic.
tip ~ book the 10am session: parked without any problem right next to the beach and for free.
Kristine was absolutely brilliant with our children (aged 12 and 6) keeping them interested and involved throughout the whole lesson. It is amazing what you can achieve with a few tools, some sand and water. Kristine was with us for just over 3 hours but left us with some tools, to finish our creation, whilst she started with the next family further down the beach. All in all we probably spent about 4 hours building and sculpturing the sandcastle, great fun and worth every penny.
We truly loved the experience - the children are still telling everyone about it - and we would highly recommend booking a lesson to anyone wanting a fun morning, or afternoon, on the beach in fantastic San Diego. You won't be disappointed.
A trip to the beach with a bucket and spade will NEVER be the same again.
