Visit this sandcastle does not cost anything and you will see different kind of characters (Maradona, Super Mario, Wolverine, F1 car) made of sand. You should visit here.

Visited in summer and the sand sculptures are beautiful. You can walk around and look at them closely, and they are very detailed. Pleasant way to spend an afternoon in town as you can have a coffee afterwards and perhaps a dip in the lake.
