Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: The best way to spend time on San Diego's beaches is by doing something unique - build a professional style sand castle! San Diego Sand Castles isn't a gallery, competition, or "thing to see" for public viewing (please don't come to our address expecting to see sand castles!) In fact, we're a far more interactive reservations-required beachside "thing to do" where your group gets to be the artists! San Diego Sand Castles specializes in sand castle lessons for people of all ages all year-round! Our sand castle lessons are a lot of fun, are educational, and a great way to spend time on the beach in San Diego. When the instructors aren't happily teaching sand castle lessons, they are often working on professional masterpiece commissioned sculptures or you can often find them creating their own unique ideas!

We had a great afternoon with Andrew during our vacation in San Diego. My husband thought I was crazy, but our kids (14 & 16) were up for it, so I signed us up. We all had so much fun and agreed that it was totally worth it! Couldn't believe that we actually built an amazing sandcastle. People kept coming up and asking about it! Try it out, you won't be disappointed.

We had an awesome time on the Pacific beach in San Diego building our sandcastle! It was a fun learning experience for the entire family. Our instructor took us beyond our imagination to ensure we create unforgettable memories. This is a definite TO DO for all!

Spending time with his grand kids is my husband's favorite activity, so I set up a sand castle birthday party for him and the kids. Everyone had a great time and now the kids are asking for their own sand castle building birthday parties. I just hope they invite Grampa Toto or he is going to be awfully disappointed.
