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!

My family loved it! It was a unique experience for everyone involved and brought out the kid in all of us. A very memorable experience.

I loved learning all of the pro-techniques for building amazing sandcastles! Any and all ages could do it, we had a lot of fun building two huge multi-tiered sandcastles and even a huge bridge from one to the other! Would really recommend it to anyone looking to have a fun day at the beach!

What a fun outing for our family! It's a must do for SoCal residents and vacationers! We even put the pic on our Christmas card this year.

I never expected this to be a hit. But it was reviewed so highly on Trip Advisor, that we thought, why not? Ended up being a real memory-maker of our trip. Great for a couple who wants to do something different.
