A Gallery of the Most Incredible Sandcastles Ever Seen!

 A vacation well spent is one spent at the beach, and no day at the beach is complete without sunbathing and sandcastles. A few buckets and shovels are all it takes to make your own little fantasy mansion in the sand, complete with a moat and a plastic dinosaur on guard (playing the role of a fire-breathing dragon, of course). For some people, making sandcastles is more than just a fun beach-day pastime.

Sculpting castles in the sand is a true art form, constructing minute architectural masterpieces that royalty would dream of living in. These castles don’t have the longest lifespan, given the impact of high tide and heavy winds, but they are nonetheless breathtaking. These 25 sand sculptures will truly leave you in awe.
